Balanced lug

A simple rig that's perfectly effective, especially for our smaller dories, the balanced lug is based on a single sail that is not attached to the mast in any way, but rather is laced to the boom and yard. This makes a lug sail easy to rig, to reef and to repair - but then again, there's not a lot to go wrong here and no expensive fittings to mess with.
