Ships, Sailing, Maritime / large sailing vessels
Dutch term or phrase: zeilvoering
This term encompasses the types of sail a vessel carries, and/or the sails that are set/hoisted in a particular situation. There is no further context; the word is used here to indicate a subject, above an exam question for students of a maritime school. A tiny bit of context is provided by Dutch Wikipedia, in the subheading: "Typen van schepen en hun zeilvoering".
Is there a one-on-one translation for this term, or should I go with something descriptive or general, like "sails"?

sail-plan
Explanation:
Het lijkt me, op basis van het Engelse wikipedia-artikel, dat 'zeilvoering' vertaald kan worden met het ruimere begrip sail-plan, dat ook zeilplan omvat. In het Engels omvat sail-plan ook de configuratie (de zeilvoering):

A sail-plan is a set of drawings, usually prepared by a naval architect. It shows the various combinations of sail proposed for a sailing ship.

The combinations shown in a sail-plan almost always include three configurations:

A light air sail plan. Over most of the Earth, most of the time, the wind force is Force 1 or less. Thus a sail plan should include a set of huge, lightweight sails that will keep the ship underway in light breezes.
A working sail plan. This is the set of sails that are changed rapidly in variable conditions. They are much stronger than the light air sails, but still lightweight. An economical sail in this set will include several sets of reefing ties, so the area of the sail can be reduced in a stronger wind.
A storm sail plan. This is the set of very small, very rugged sails flown in a gale, to keep the vessel under way and in control.

In het Nederlandse wiki-artikel wordt zeilvoering overigens in de zin van zeilplan gebruikt.
