I seem to remember a long lost magazine photograph of a thoroughly pimped Mirror (of all things), which had been rigged with a bowsprit (old boom, lashed to mast and forestay attachment) as well as a mizzen (another old boom, this time lashed to the transom and that slot in the skeg).  It carried an extra jib in front of the normal one, as well as a flying jib (attached halfway up the gaff) and yet another sail attached to the mizzen, although I can't remember what was used for a mizzen boom.  So, it had 5 working sails ...  Being a Mirror, I think it was unlikely that it now went any faster or slower!

at a sailing center that i worked at. they got a taz and put a topper rig on it with  another topper mast for a bowsprit with three jibs on it.  they got it so that all of the jibs taked together but there was so much force on the pole that you had to let the jib off to stop it breaking with every gust.  good speed tho

At my scouts we see how much sail we can fit on our boats using oars to extend the mast, as a bowsprit, and then sometimes we fit it with a trapeze.
