The next set of sailing vessels, following logically from the single-masted vessels, will be those with two masts. Just as a recap, there were some vessels touched on in the last post that could have more than one mast, the caravel and the lugger. Two masted versions will tend to be a little bigger, and will suffer a little from wind shadow (where the sails on the forward mast are at least partially blocked from the wind by the sails on the after mast) when sailing directly downwind.
There was another type that I overlooked last time, or maybe I intentionally left it out and don't remember why; this one is the felucca. Feluccas were lateen-rigged ships (a type of fore-and-aft rig originating in the eastern Mediterranean) with 1-3 masts. If I can find anything that sets lateen sails apart from any other fore-and-aft rigging scheme, I'll get around to developing those details into game mechanics, but for now, feluccas will probably be grouped in with another type of vessel for game purposes.

A yawl has most of its sail area on the mainmast, with a much smaller sail on its mizzen mast, situated far to back of the ship, generally behind the rudder post. All sails are fore-and-aft. Yawls are easily handled by smaller crews.

A ketch is very similar to a yawl, with fore-and-aft sails on a large mainmast and a much smaller mizzen. The mizzen mast of a ketch is before the rudder post (not as far back as a yawl's). As a war vessel, ketches are usually equipped with a mortar on the deck ahead of the mainmast, and used to bombard shore installations. Such a vessel is referred to as a bomb ketch.
