SY Arabella Sails
Caught 6 of the 7 sails she flies but what really intrigues me about this photo is the color gradient of blue!
Trimming the Sails
With 7 sails to tend there is always something to do as crew of the Yacht Arabella. All of whom thoroughly enjoyed the task!
Black and White Sails
I truly need to spend much more time with all of my photos with the color turned off!

Arabella Working Deck
Up on top of the salon, the working deck is an impressive space to manage all the sail handling and helming from
Riding with the Wind
Arabella can put up 7 sails and produce very respectable speeds. I had never been on a sailing ship this large and she felt very powerful and stable
