Junk rig sail on Socotra island

 My life on the island of Socotra   

The lack of tourists gave us a lot of free time. This allowed us to make a small sailing trimaran from the local plastic boat huri. In fact, it is a plastic analog of the classical Socotran boat, hollowed from piece of wood.

The length of the boat - 5.5 meters. We used improvised materials found on Socotra.

The first tests was successful on the water. We are waiting for stable northeast winds to go on a trip around Socotra.
