Xebec Lateen

These were used predominantly in the Mediterranean by Spain, France, Turkey and the Barbary pirates. They were capable of sailing with different sets of sail, according to the force or direction of the wind.

The pictures show the difference between a Lateen rig which was more maneuverable and the Polacre rig which has a combination of square and lateen sails.
