Are you just trying to identify them?

In size order largest to smallest it is: Mainsail, Genoa, Yankee, Staysail.
Cheers

thanks ... ok with what they are/do ... actual dimensions, they seem illusive ...
wondering what's best in particular for staysail and yankee, which in intend to sail as a pair ...
rigging for single handing, and perhaps racing if I can find some for this boat here in Finistere

The boat sails really well SH. Most always fly staysail and furl/unfurl Genoa or Yankee, though the designer told me he did not intend that both foresails should be used routinely. From my experience of sailing the CC in a group, my advice is to hank on the staysail and reef the mainsail early. To learn more, you’ll need to join us at the rally...... ;)

It would be lovely for you to join in. If you got the ferry to Portsmouth, it’s a short drive afterwards and lots of help will be available for rigging and launching.
