“The topsail schooner is a two or more masted vessel that carries a fore’n’aft rig on each of her masts but with the addition of one or more square sails rigged onto the foremast. This combination of sails gives the practical and upwind efficiency of a fore’n’aft rig with the added capability of a better downwind or off the wind performance with the square sails. This type of rig was once a common sight in Canadian waters and was used by fishing vessels, cargo ships, and even naval vessels, where the addition of large square sails rigged high aloft meant that there was less chance of them being shot through in battle. One of the better-known ships that carried this rig in Canada was HMS Nancy, made famous during the War of 1812.”
