Abstract: Mr Gardner writes questioning the designation of ESMERALDA'S rig as that of 'barquentine' as reported by journalists. He claims it is a topsail schooner. His letter was referred to Mr Henderson for comment. After describing the history of the vessel Mr Henderson writes that the unorthodox rig should be called barquentine schooner in line with the Chilean navy's practice.
