Newport Sloop

In the US a sloop may have one, two or three head-sails forward of the mast. Sloops are either masthead-rigged or fractional-rigged. On a masthead-rigged sloop, the forestay (on which the headsail is carried) attaches at the top of the mast. The mainsail may be smaller than the headsail, which is then called a genoa jib. On a fractional-rigged sloop, the forestay attaches to the mast at a point below the top, typically 3/4 of the way to top, or perhaps 7/8 or some other fraction. The mast of a fractional-rigged sloop may be placed farther forward; compared to a masthead-rigged sloop, this results in a rather smaller jib relative to the size of the mainsail. (Wikipedia)

This boat invites one to tell the story of how it was found at the Marché Biro, avenue Michelet in Paris. It was the deep distressed black, white and red patina that attracted instantly. And the fact that the old gentleman confided that it was purchased only recently at Drouot, the one auction house in Paris. Better catch your breath; you might get carried away since it still has its AM bronze name plaque in place somewhere… Astounding in its very own way.
