Word Origin for brigantine

“small two-masted ship,” 1520s, from Middle French brigandin (15c.), from Italian brigantino , perhaps “skirmishing vessel, pirate ship,” from brigante “skirmisher, pirate, brigand” from brigare “fight”

Every rope, sail, pulley, block and anything to do with the rigging, has its own name!

Crew members get to learn all the names, all functions and where each part of the rigging is located on the vessel. At first you won’t have a “clew”.. and your head will be “choka block” with everything!
