paraw-sailing-adventureHere are a few of the many YouTube videos featuring Paraw outrigger sailing canoes. They are amazingly fast, in addition to being colorful.

I love the unique trampoline configuration. While the center hull itself is almost completely decked-over, the wide tramps allow for many passengers.

One thing I am not sure about are the steering control lines attached to the rudder. There are no tillers or push-pull sticks, just control lines. Is that comfortable on the hands? One of the videos below seems to show the control line being fed through a block. If anyone can find a video or illustration that offers some more details on the ways this control line is arranged then we’d appreciate links in the “comments” section below.
