Goosewing refers to a position of sails in a fore-and-aft rigged sailboat, in which the mainsail is set to the leeward and the jib to the windward. This position may be used when running almost straight downwind.
The epic poems of Homer, the Iliad and the Odyssey, shed some light on Bronze-Age Ithaca. Those poems are generally thought to have been composed sometime in the 9th century BC, but may have made use of older mythological and poetic traditions; their depiction of the hero Odysseus and his rule over Ithaca and the surrounding islands and mainland preserves some memories of the political geography, customs, and society of the time.
