What is the trailing edge of a sail called (from head to clew)?

Send your answer to cruisingcompass@bwsailing.com. A winner, who will receive a Blue Water Sailing hat, will be selected at random from the correct answers.

Thanks to last week’s Mindbender winner, Randy Pike, for his answer to “How is a sailboat’s hull speed (sometimes called displacement speed) calculated?”: 1.34 x (sqrt (DSL)) = theoretical hull speed. (DSL – displacement waterline length.) Also acceptable was some form of 1.34 x sqrt of the LWS.
