A tall pole that holds sails on a boat?

There are several poles that hold sails. The one you are probably refering to is the mast, which is vertical and usually at least the length of the ship. Some designs can have more than one mast, in which case there are several different names for various arrangements, and the masts have different names as well. Another type of pole that holds a sail is the boom, which is a spar that connects the bottom edge of the mainsail to the mast so it can be controlled. Other types include spinnaker poles and whisker poles, which allow the use of different headsails to make the boat faster or more efficient.
