A "gaffer" can be an old man it's true, but around our club it's a particular type of rig that includes a four-sided sail and is controlled by a spar along the peak known as, you guessed it, a gaff. Okay, many of them come in pairs - a gaff rigged boat maneuvered by another old gaffer, but that's another story. If you have one if these fine boats then you will find yourself very welcome at the Royal Burnham Y.C. by both those who sail them and those who just look confused.
