Fitted with a single mast and a square-rigged single sail and measuring 15 to 25 meters (49 to 82 ft) in length with a beam of 5 to 8 meters (16 to 26 ft) they were widely used during the 12th Century as trading vessels.
One such Cog, outfitted for war and provided by the Earl of Pembroke, grappled the French flagship during the Battle of Sandwich (24th August 1217). The resultant capture of the French commanders' Admiral Eustace the Monk and Robert I (the younger son of the emperor Peter II of Courtenay) meant the defeat of the French armada and ended Prince Louis's attempt to conquer England.
