This is what a Latiner can do!
See how the main and the jib are actually lifting the boat running downwind. Other rigs depress the bow.
I’m also struck by how much this boat looks like boats from Portugal at the other end of the Mediterranean World. More images here.
This is just a quick post to celebrate this incredible image. It says so much about boats and why we love them.
I hope to expand on this soon.
In the meantime, let me invite you to add your own examples, either of wonderful Mediterranean boats in action or images of any boat that really inspires you. Direct any comment to Boats for Difficult Times.
