Bear in mind that the questioner is a total landlubber. I have had some replies from chat but there is conflicting information.

The Trader Lynx has 8 sails. I would like to know what each of these is for the purposes of game function only, not real life naming function. This is to better know which sails of the 8 it has will benefit from staysails books and which will do so for squaresails books. Eg the 'Treatise on staysails'

In my mind a triangular sail has 3 points and a square sail has 4 points. The upper sail in between the fore and aft mast on the T Lynx looks like a triangle but the end is cut off giving it four points and making it a square (irregular quadrilateral).

So the question is, in game terms, what do each of the 8 sails on a T Lynx count as (square, stay, other etc). Replying to the format below and adding descriptors to the ? marks would be ideal.

The three triangular sails at the front of the vessel are: ?

The lower square sail between the two vertical masts is: ?

The upper sail between the two vertical masts is: ?
