Holman Bible Dictionary
A small sail used to steer a vessel in strong wind (Acts 27:40
). KJV refers to the “mainsail.” Paul's ship likely had a large central mast with a long yard arm supporting the large, square mainsail and a smaller foremast, slopping forward like a bowsprit, which carried the foresail.
