With a square rigged sail, the wind simply pushes the boat along. With a fore and aft rigged sail, the wind is caught at an angle and slices on past the sail, pushing the sail hard down wind and a bit forward.

Square rigged ship: The wind just blows the boat down wind. Fore and aft rigged sailboat (a sloop) Note that the sail boat is tipped over a bit (heeling).
