  a promise of discovery and adventure

No one can deny the fascination man has with masts, tangled cables, sails and the elegance of big sailing boats. They represent a long gone era and, at the same time, the promise of future voyages and adventures.
These ships are a symbol of the way this planet began globalisation. They are a means of transportation, using a renewable energy as its main source.
Nowadays, most of these sailing boats are purely curiosities or training ships, which resist the passing of time, and are an undeniable part of the history of our relationship with the oceans.

Here are two excellent examples:
