Sailing Away

Over the years, I've come across many old photos of movie stars sailing their own small sail boats.  These days, celebrities are more likely to be found aboard the mega-yachts of Russian oligarchs in St. Tropez than manning the helm.  I suppose if I had the chance to experience such luxury, I'd take it too but there is also something about a beautiful old wooden boat that is the height of chicness.  Hope you enjoy this look at many different types of sailing!
