"Jamie Green"? That sail is still a mystery to me but C. Fox Smith mentions it in two other poems. The best I can come up with is that the "Jamie Green" is one of the extra sails a captain would add in the hope of gaining a little more speed. It is not a staysail, a stunsail, topsail, or ringtail. It may be one of the "dainty skysails" or one of the "water sails."
