    Those old schooners, if that's the right phrase, are pretty awesome. Probably not very enjoyable if you're prone to getting sea sick though.

    Hello Gunny, Strictly speaking Schooners were 2 or 3 masted ships with all the lower sails rigged fore and aft. Sometimes square rig topsails were added for extra speed.
    The ships depicted here are Barques with 3 or more masts all square rigged except the mizzen mast (rearmost mast) which was fore and aft rigged.
    Fore and aft rigging allowed the ships to sail much closer to the wind at the expence of speed.
    Modern yachts use fore and aft sails for manoverability and run up spinakers for additional downwind speed.

    Hello Z, Nice stamp. Lovely out-rigger canoes with sails that remind me of Jeepneys.

    A stamp commemorating the Merchant Marines is appropriate.

    Hello, another Barque rigged ship the "Endeavour". A refitted collier (coal ship).
    In August 1768 Captain James Cook and a crew of 100 Sailed via Tierra del Fuego to the South seas to observe the transit of Venus from the island of Tahiti and to secretly search for a southern continent (terra australis incognita). He circumnavigated and mapped the islands of New Zealand and the Eastern coast of "New Holland" Australia. He returned to England in July 1771 via Batavia (Java) and Cape Town.
