The pram dingy POGO rigged lateen

Dingy POGO with Lateen sail.

I experimented with a lateen rig on my winnard Sabot hull, with Bolger style leeboard. The lateen pulled like a mule. The sail was laced to a long bamboo pole. Unlike more traditional lateen rigs I did not secure the lower end of the yard to the front of the boat, just tied it back to the mast, letting it swing free to find its own best angle to the wind.
