Typical Bermuda-rigged sloop
Typical Bermuda-rigged sloop

A sloop is a sailing boat with a single mast[1] typically meaning one headsail in front of the mast, and one mainsail aft of (behind) the mast. This is called a fore-and-aft rig, and can be rigged as a Bermuda rig with triangular sails fore and aft, or as a gaff-rig with triangular foresails and a gaff rigged mainsail. Sailboats can be classified according to type of rig, and so a sailboat may be a sloop, catboat, cutter, ketch, yawl, or schooner.[2] A sloop usually has only one headsail, although an exception is the Friendship sloop, which is usually gaff-rigged with a bowsprit and multiple headsails.[3] If the vessel has two or more headsails, the term cutter may be used,[4] especially if the mast is stepped further towards the back of the boat.

The name originates from the Dutch sloep, which is related to the Old English slūpan, to glide.[5] In naval terminology a sloop-of-war refers to the purpose of the craft, rather than to the specific size or sail-plan.

After the cat rig which has only a single sail,[6] the Bermuda rig is the simplest sailing rig configurations. It is the most popular yacht rigging[7] because it is easier to sail with a smaller crew or even single-handed, it is cheaper since it has less hardware than more complex rigs, and it sails well into the wind. A limitation is that when a boat gets over 45 feet in length, the sails become so large that they are difficult to handle,[6] although modern technology is helping with this.

The headsail can be 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. On a fractional-rigged sloop, the forestay attaches to the mast at a point below the top. A sloop may use a bowsprit, a spar that projects forward from the bow.

This video is sponsored by Skillshare. Sailing Vessel Arianrhod. She's a 1979 Morgan 38.2 that has sailed around the globe once already and she is our mobile floating production studio and our home and today we are going to give you a tour, but we have some heavy weather predicted so, first! Arianrhod is a Celtic mythical character. The Silver Moon or the Fair Maiden and she is also the mother of Dylan. This is our sailboat and right now we are docked with six dock lines cuz... Welcome to Sailing Vessel Arianrhod. Approximately 215 square feet depending on how you count of modernized retro amenities. In the fo'c'sle we have a glorious v-berth modified to get the maximum storage. The fo'c'sle serves mainly as storage for extra baggage, bedding, clothing, and laundry. Moving aft into the cabin on the starboard side we have the closet. Aft-ward the closet is the head equipped with this standard marine pump toilet. Not being equipped with hot water we boil water, put it in the garden sprayer for a shower. In the salon we are kept warm with our Cubic Mini wood stove and instruments for Kumbaya. Food storage. I'm a Dometic refrigerator. I'm the same model, but set to freezer mode! STOVE! Welcome to the Navigation Table. Where I creatively endeavor on my archaic computer. Equipped with a new Beta Marine 38 engine Arianrhod is a complete home on the water. After living in a van for nearly two years Arianrhod provides ample space to work, live, and travel the globe in comparatively stylish luxury. Arianrhod is a sloop rig that has been modified into a unique cutter as to be able to carry two different furling head sails making her an incredibly versatile vessel. Our forward most sail is our Genoa and our biggest of the primary sails. Aft of the Genoa is the Jib which has significantly less sail area than the Genoa. Attached to the mast is our main sail which has three reefing points for heavy weather. We also have a Spinnaker and a Storm Jib which stay stored below. Recently equipped with davits we store a 9.9 HP motor in our dinghy astern. Arianrhod is equipped with a slew of equipment: PFD's, a life raft, as well as an extra 35 gallons of diesel bringing the total carrying capacity of diesel to 75 gallons providing 150 hours of engine run time. We also carry a total of 10 gallons of petrol for our dinghy. On the bow we are equipped with a 20 kilo Rocna Anchor and two hundred foot of chain. We have held with this anchor in 30-plus knots of wind. We have drug anchor in the record-breaking 80 nautical mile an hour Bora. Our second anchor we have actually never used and I don't really know anything about it, BUT it probably would have kept us solid in that Bora. Let's haul her out and take a look at under the water line Arianrhod has 30 feet six inches on the water line. She has five feet on the draft. She's designed with an elongated fin keel with a skag attached rudder. She's ballasted with six thousand eight hundred pounds of lead and in the aft portion of the keel there's a 15 gallon waste holding tank. With her voluptuous curves she displaces seventeen thousand two hundred pounds of water. Arianrhod is a well functioning sound seafaring vessel but is by no means perfect. The AIS sometimes works. The radar doesn't work. The MFHF transceiver doesn't work This stereo doesn't work. This battery monitor doesn't work. I took out the water heater because when the engine was on it would dump all our potable water. I've never used this monitor. Some of the outlets don't even work. The horn doesn't work. The speakers kind of work. The important part of the autopilot does work most of the time. The anchor control from the cockpit don't work and the depth gauge does work. The wind indicator is literally only working because we're filming it, it NEVER works. And the knot meter works as well as a knot meter works. The water maker doesn't work and I can't figure out why. The shower doesn't work but we have an alternative. Forward burner on the stove that doesn't actually even exist. The other traveler stop...that goes lost to the sea. With a 300 watt poly-crystalline solar panel and a 200 watt wind generator, an alternator a generator, and occasionally shore power we are able to keep our 750 amp hour 12 volt flooded lead-acid battery bank alive but we are soon in need to upgrade to lithium polymer. As is nearly all things in life Arianrhod has a laundry list of things to do. Now it's time to Explore Life Together. I hope you're excited because up next is our first sail after four and a half months of turmoil on land. This is how we do voice-over in Arianrhod.
