What kind of traditional rig is this?



The vessel is a proa?

What is this rig called?

Anyone seen similar with a spar holding the sail open?

Thanks Philip

Some like to call them Oceanic Lateen. Search for either term.

It looks to me like a Sprit rigged tacking proa. Used to be common in Vanuatu, until outboard disease took over.

Here is a Peapod dinghy using a spritsail.

Notice the similar design of the sail and use of a thin spar (sprit) to hold the sail open at the top.
