Schooner Rigged

Although a schooner may have up to seven masts, the typical schooner has only two, with the foremast shorter than the mainmast. Traditional schooners were gaff rigged, with the the foresail occuping the inter-mast space. A two-masted schooner has the mainsail on the aft mast, and its other mast is the foremast. A topsail schooner is square rigged on the top of the foremast.
