Wing *on* wing or wing *and* wing?

Which is preferable, "wing on wing" or "wing and wing"?

I did a search on SailNet and found 717 hits on WoW and 5,040 for WaW. The fourth edition of The Annapolis Book of Seamanship only lists "wing-and-wing" in the index.

So is "wing-and-wing" the correct thing to say?

the proprietor is a friend of a friend. The sauce is good. check it out

Re: Wing *on* wing or wing *and* wing?

If the Annapolis book says 'and', I would be inclined to believe it was correct. I suspect the typical wing 'n wing is more easily heard as On than And.

Re: Wing *on* wing or wing *and* wing?

Been wondering about this term myself...would've lost the bet...

FWIW - Chapman's 1960 edition, pg. 84 says..."Sailing before the wind, sails are sometimes set on opposite sides of the boat; this is called wing and wing."
