The Viking Longship is a square-rigged sailing vessel, meaning the sails are carried on horizontal spars called "yards" held perpendicular - or "square" - to the keel of the vessel. Square rigged vessels take advantage of strong directional winds, but sacrifice upwind maneuverability. A fin keel helps keep the Viking Longship on course, and high bow and stern prows help it cut through high waves.
Sea Flea Pocket Yachts are the smallest functional sailboats in the world! They literally sail on a breath of wind in seas as small as a kitchen sink, and need only scissors to assemble. Once the kit is opened, they are ready to sail in minutes. Fully adjustable sail and keel fin make sailing on all points possible.
