General view from forward. Note in particular the unusual fin under her chin. Pietri remarks on it in his text, though it doesn't show in his illustration of the boat under sail. Such a fin, placed thus, would provide excellent lateral resistance for sailing upwind. So, notwithstanding her dependence on the monsoons changes to make long passages, with her lug sails and this fin and her deep rudder, she could have worked to weather very well at need.
