"The most striking outward quality
of a sailing vessel is beauty.
The lines of her hull mirror the
wave-line grace of the sea. Her
slender masts, her spider web
rigging and her white cloud of sail
make a picture of delicacy and
power unequalled in all of man’s
inventions. No other fabric is so
made up of strong yet subtle curves;
the taper of a spar as nicely
proportioned as a Doric column;
the sweep of a sheer line is a poem;
the bellying wind strained canvas
is a vivid picture of swift and silent
