This concise reference book describes development of European and North American sailing rigs and defines and explains all the different forms, both for square and fore-and-aft rig.
The book is arranged by rig type, from the full-rigged ship down to the catboat; each is illustrated by specially-commissioned scale drawings that depict all the varieties and illustrate well-known or significant ships. The concise text defines and introduces each type and explains its history and development, while a wide array of contemporary photographs and paintings show the various sail plans in their different guises and employment. A chart of the basic classifications enables the reader to quickly identify the rig of any sailing vessel.

This lavishly illustrated book considers the sail plans that vessels have used during the past 250 years of western sailing. The author explores why sail plans have changed through the centuries, and how technological and practical limitations combined to lead, for example, Polynesians to build small, light crafts, while Europeans built massive, slow vessels. She presents the twelve most-common rigging-styles of the era in language that asks the reader not to be an expert, only keenly interested.
