Nipper Dinghy Rigging Help/Advice Needed


We have acquired a Nipper dinghy that was left to us but we're not totally sure how the rigging works. Please see attached pictures for the set up.

It has a short aluminium mast that is permanently fixed with a pulley wheel in the top. It also has a longer wooden mast that you can see fixed to the aluminium mast near its base, a little above the boom. Our issue is firstly how do we go about raising and then fixing the wooden mast in place? Following that how do we go about hoisting the sail up the mast or should it be put in place before the wooden mast is raised?

The wooden mast has a bracket part way up that is shown in close up.

Any help or guidance is much appreciated.
