Sailing Schooner

Camamu, Bahia, Brazil
This is a typical Brazilian (built by Estaliero Camarada in Camamu) schooner under sail (many never sail, the masts are just used to support the canopies that keep the hot sun off the passengers). I was told that before engines were around, 2 and 3-masted schooners were commonly used to transport freight (in the north of Brazil).
