VOILES LATINES 2006. Toutes voiles dehors. Dating back to Roman navigation, the lateen became the favourite sail of the Age of Discovery. It is common in the Mediterranean, the upper Nile, and the northwestern parts of the Indian Ocean, where it is the standard rig for feluccas and dhows. The lateen is used today in a slightly different form on small recreational boats like the highly popular Sailfish and Sunfish, but is still used as a working rig by coastal fishermen in the Mediterranean.
