The 19th and early 20th centuries saw the greatest flow of navel transport between Spain and her overseas colonies, thanks to the commercial agreements that had been established with them. The Aurora is a good example of a brig. This kind of vessel was widely used for travel to the Americas as her rigging provided the best results in conditions of constant wind.
