Medieval sailing vessel:
I'm not sure if this is a cog or another type of sailing vessel. It was in Cannes, France
It is square rigged, with steering oars on both sides. I don't see evidence of a foresail nor a topsail. I note another yard and sail on the pier. The mainyard appears to be two spars lashed together to make a longer yardarm.

I'd appreciate more information about this one! I couldn't get closer because the pier was gated.
