Ship history

The Pinta was together with the Nina and the Santa Maria, ship of Columbus fleet on his discovery voyage. She was originally lateen rigged with one mast square rigged (caravela redonda) but was refitted just 10 days into the expedition leaving just the rear mast lateen rigged. The sails consisted of a square foresail and great mainsail, while the mizzenmast, supported a long yard for lateen triangular sail. It had a poop quarterdeck and, unlike the sister-ship Nina, also forecastle. The Pinta was the fastest of the three ships, confirming the logbooks, which indicated that this caravel was during the voyage often ahead of the two other ships.
