Beached Schooner

04 September 2009 | Parati, RJ, Brazil

Tourist schooner on the beach for maintenance in Paraty. Paraty is a very pretty tourist town near Ilha Grande.

I think there are more schooners (a schooner is a sailboat with two or more masts, where the front mast is shorter than the back mast) in Brazil than there are in the USA. Most (not all) of the schooners in Brazil are like the one in the picture, pretty boats that don't actually sail, but instead motor around with canopies like the one above keeping the hot sun off the tourists on deck.
