A yard is a spar used to suspend the top of a sail, a square sail or gaff-sail. The yard is hung from the mast by slings.
The section of a yard between the slings is the bunt.
The ends of a yard outboard of the attachments of the lifts are the yardarms.
The sections between the yardarms and the bunt are the quarters.
