Jangada Mast Details

10 May 2010 | Maceio, Alagoas, Brazil

The mast is the unpainted vertical pole. The owner is holding the boom. The bottom of the mast is put into one of several holes (being pointed to) depending on wind strength and which side of the boat the wind is coming over. Since the sail can't really be reefed (made smaller), changing the mast rake (angle) is done to compensate somewhat for stronger winds.

The tack (lower front corner) of the sail is tied to one of the vertical blue poles that are part of the mast step.

Just behind the mast is the daggerboard trunk (the slot in the white wood).
