Bahian sailboat

13 July 2009 | Bahia, Brazil

Traditional Bahian sailboat beating to windward. I took this picture a few days ago in Bahia de Todos Santos.

The died to nothing yesterday, then came back to a nice force 3 tailwind, with clear skies, lots of stars and a fair-sized moon. Now (morning) the wind is dying away again and the sails are making lots of noise as they flop around with the gentle rolling of the boat.
