Privateer Lynx with Stuns'l

Privateer Lynx racing from Los Angeles to San Diego in the 2005 Tall Ships Challenge Series. Notice the dolphins just to the right of the bowsprit.

The sail alongside her square topsail is a studding sail (stu'n's'l) and is used in lighter air to get the most speed out of the boat.
