The vertical pole on a sailboat is called the mast, but at the bottom of the sail is horizontal pole called a boom. On the Tall Ships, the horizontal pole AT THE TOP of the sail is called the yardarm.
The mast.Answer:The vertical spar the sail attaches to is the Mast. The horizontal spar is called a Boom.
Mast (vertical, leading edge of sail), Boom (horizontal,bottom of sail), and a spinnaker pole if you use a spinnaker which is a sail type
the pole that holds up the sail is called the mast
a pole is used on symmetrical boats, or a boat that has the spinnaker, or kite, out in front of it. An A-Symmetrical boat puts the spinnaker to the side. A-Symmetrical boats use a bowsprit to hold the sail out in front of the boat, but Symmetricals use a pole. it clips onto the mast of the boat, and the other ends holds the sail.
You are describing the mast.
The wind is what causes a sailboat to sail.
Sailboat is to sail as kite is to fly, just as airplane is to wing and oil tanker is to engine.
Yes, sailboat is a compound word. (sail + boat = sailboat)

Collects wind, it is a triangular sail placed at the front of the sailboat.
Um.........you just said the answer. its called a sail
A sailboat can certainly be operating under sail at night. Sailboats use their sails when there is enough wind to carry them.

A sailboat under sail is about to cross paths with a PWC. What action should be taken?
