In sailing, a spar is a round pole of wood, metal or lightweight materials such as carbon fiber used on a sailing ship. Spars of all types (e.g. booms and masts) are used in the rigging of sailing vessels to resist compressive and bending forces, and to provide (direct or indirect) support for the sails.
