In this episode we start by looking at sailing yacht rigs in general - we discuss some of the most common types of sails and rigs and how to tell them apart, with help from some examples in Port Townsend. Then we have a closer look at Tally Ho’s original sailplan before meeting some of the people who have been involved in planning her new rig.

We have to do some detective work to determine the changes that were made to Tally Ho’s rig in 1927 - the year she won the Fastnet race - but finally we are confident in the dimensions and ready to draw a new sailplan and order the sail cloth that will become Tally Ho’s sails.
