What is going on? - I cannot make out what it is this lump of folds halfway up in the course.

They might be going about in both pictures, swinging the after yards round with the courses hauled partially up so as to avoid having to shift sheets and tacks. But in this one it is a mystery to me what sail begins and ends where. We are seeing two sets of shrouds/backstays, and the "lump" on top might therefore be the bottom of a lower sail, and not the middle of a sail with some buntline stuck in some cringle... yes I think I see it now. Sure, I am not, but observing the second set of shrouds eased the confusion a little
