PINTA

PINTA - click to enlargePINTA - click to enlarge
The Third ship of the Christopher Columbus Expedition. Pinta was a square sails caravel. The sails consisted of a square foresail and a great mainsail, while the mizzenmast, supported a long yard for a lateen triangular sail. It had a poop quarterdeck and, unlike the sistership Nina, also a forecastle. The Pinta was the fastest of the three ships, confirming the log books, which indicated that this caravel was during the voyage often ahead of the other two ships.
