Definition of lugsail in English:
An asymmetrical four-sided sail which is bent on and hoisted from a steeply inclined yard.
- As you see, the balanced lug sail pivots around the mast.
- Modern and novice sailors are horrified about the lugsail being distorted by pressing against the mast on one tack but the effect is quite slight.
