    The 2020 AGM of the Junk Rig Association will be held on Saturday July 25th commencing at 3pm. The location will once again be at Brixham, UK. At this early stage the actual meeting venue is yet to be decided. It is hoped that the AGM, Dinner and Sailing will be as successful as the 2019 event but holding the AGM later in the season may mean that even more boats can attend.

    This year’s AGM will be attended by John Kwong, JRA member in China and Hai-Bin-Zhau the chairman of Chinese Traditional Sailing Association. John Kwong, has been involved for a number of years building traditional Chinese junks. A number of their sampans are going to be shipped to Brest and Amsterdam to take part in their maritime festivals.  Unfortunately the sampans cannot make it to Brixham but both John and Mr Hai-Bin-Zhau would like to sail on western junks and learn from us, as we can learn from them.


    Members are encouraged to put their names forward to become committee members. If you are interested then please contact an existing Committee member who can walk you through the application process. Nominations will close on 13 June 2020

    Although the physical AGM will take place in the UK every member can register for the online forum, give their apologies, vote on proposals including the proposed subscriptions and on the election of Committee members.

    Looking forward to a good turnout.

    Rob Prince

    Hon. Sec.
