If you're a southerner you might say "Yawl ketch a look at that schooner".

Trivia question for all you sailors:

Is that boat a
  1. yawl
  2. ketch
  3. schooner
  4. other

Yawl of course.

When the mizzen is shorter than the main, and the mizzen sail hangs over the stern, you've got yourself a yawl.

Are you claiming your short mizzen still hangs over your stern?

Spent a week on this boat when I was a high-schooler.

"My message contains too few characters"

Fuck you!

And apparently the attachment was far to big. No message about that. Jeebus Christ.

Sorry. I should know by now that complaining will only get me a night in the box.

New arrival at Sea Independent, Traditional Schooner ``Skythia``

25 January 2016, Replica of the famous yacht AMERICA

The special thing about the SKYTHIA is the faithful sailing pleasure of a classic yacht. The sailors of SKYTHIA will be sent back to the year 1851 when the legendary AMERICA followed the invitation from England to take part in the famous „One Hundred Sovereign Cup“ around Isle of Wight.
Queen Victoria watched on August 22, 1851 at 20:37 the finish of AMERICA and asked curiously who for now is second. The answer as simple as true:

"Ah, Your Majesty, there is no second."

Asking price EUR 950.000 Vat paid
:P
