Chinese Junks are believed to have been created during the reign of Han Dynesty, primarily developed from early bamboo rafts with high stems. Still widely used and constantly developed around the world, Chinese Junks remain most popular in Hong-Kong.
The sails were built to allow easy and fast sailing, with its hull being technically superior and advanced to western ships, a key feature western builders went on to replicate. Historian, H. Warington Smyth, was quoted saying “As an engine for carrying man and his commerce upon the high and stormy seas as well as on the vast inland waterways, it is doubtful if any class of vessel… is more suited or better adapted to its purpose than the Chinese or Indian junk, and it is certain that for flatness of sail and handiness, the Chinese rig is unsurpassed."
