Lug Rig with Jigger.

The Dandy Jigger, or Mizzen Rig, is named after the small sail aft, near the rudder-head. This jigger, mizzen, or dandy may have a boom, a sprit, or be rigged as a lug.

In puffy wind and in lumpy water the main and mizzen rig will be found to work well. The little sail aft should be trimmed as flat as possible. It will be found of great help in beating to the windward, and will keep the nose of the boat facing the wind when the mainsail is down.
