The lee bow
View from the 'Parma' ship's boat in a calm sea. " We are stirred by the beauty of the ship, just lying there in the calm, and we lie there on the oars and look at her while she drifts slowly on. She is very big and her masts are not high. She is not a clipper. She is a big hard-working economic windjammer, sail's last effort against the steams. But she has loveliness and grace; she follows nobly in the traditions of the best of sail, and blends perfectly into the peace of her surroundings". Alan Villiers, Voyage of the Parma, 1932 voyage.
