 A Pearl with Two Sticks

"For thirty-six happy years I was a sloop lover - "A tall ship, and a star to steer her by" kind of sailor. Efficient sailing, I thought, required an efficient vessel, and that meant a tall mast stepped far enough aft to accommodate a very large sail in the fore-triangle, stayed to the masthead, overlapping a tall, narrow mainsail by as much canvass as the sailmaker could devise, or even with an intervening staysail, as a cutter rig, with or without a bowsprit."
