Show your yachts, dinghies and sailing craft

The Forum has a machinery thread for planes and auto-mobiles but I haven't seen one dedicated for sailing craft. A quick search has shown a lot of individual posting threads from their vicinity and experience but nothing that collects all these beautiful craft in a single thread. Hard to put a category on this thread as they do make beautiful subjects in landscapes (seascapes) and are often pitted against one another in sporting events. I chose machinery as they are beautiful (mostly) artefacts of human design and craftsmanship.

This thread is for any craft which has as it's primary propulsion a sail of some kind.

To start is a series of craft photographed on the Swan River between Perth and Fremantle in January 2015. I was on a motor powered tourist catamaran with an open rear deck and the weather was perfect Western Australian summer weather.





















The last craft is an historic NZ yacht that contested the Admirals Cup a few years back - now used for tourist runs on the Waitemata Harbour around Auckland, NZ. It is awesome to see and the size is indicated by the 20 odd passengers and crew on board in the picture.



I look forward to seeing your water-borne contributions from around the world.

Thanks for taking the initiative.
This could be a good thread (not I will have much of any quality to contribute!)

Thanks Arjay.
Here's one with no sails, but plenty of potential!

Got one, for now:



Just so you know, the plans/trains and autos also had boats in that title. I've posted my other boat shots there.
