Here is a photo of a 40' sloop. It has one mast, with the mainsail behind (and attacked to) the mast and the jib in front, supported by the jib stay (the line that runs up from the nose to the top of the mast). If the jib overlaps the mast, it is a genoa jib. If a spinnaker is used, it is a sail that balloons out in front of the jib stay, and may have one corner held out by a spinnaker pole (that pivots against the mast).
