I have VERY limited sailing--mostly just pirate/tall ships. Looking for anything cool that's sailing related--but preferably your more "common" type of sailboats.

Some beautiful boats here. But I was hoping people might have some more "common" "every day" sized boats. You know, even 30-40ft boats and such. Or, hell, if someone's got a cool wallpaper of a 14ft sunfish.

I was just hoping for some more "average" sailing photos of any kind. The boat itself, bow shot, mast shots. This photo isn't exactly wall-paper worthy, but kinda' what I'm hoping to add to my collection.

Completely agree. I live by a large harbor and we have large friegh ships that come in. Not nearly as majestic as what ships used to be.

Yeah these are really beautiful.

Still hoping there will be a few people who have smaller size boats, though.

I thought I'd post something a little rarer. I have a small collection of reconstructed ancient ships, but most of them aren't wallpaper material. I'll post more if someone's interested, but they won't be in good size or quality.

These ships I'm posting are the Kyrenia II and the Olympias. The first is a merchant ship based on a wreck near Cyprus and the other one is a reconstructed Athenian trireme based on ancient texts and was built to test their speed (10 or 11 knots for the trireme at full sail and rowing, if I remember right) and maneuverability. The trials were video recorded and can be watched on YouTube. After the trials, the trireme was handed to the Greek navy.

Sadly the rest of my Kyrenia pictures are too small, so this is the last. I should note that there are currently two reconstructions of the Kyrenia (3 in total if I'm not mistaken). The other one is called "Kyrenia Liberty".
