Chilean sailing ship Esmeralda leaving Melbourne in October 1995. . She had been moored in the Yarra River, and on reaching the waters of Port Phillip Bay had put up all her sails. Since it was a still, humid afternoon, I suspect that this was more a gesture to display the ship rather than an attempt to catch the wind. A sudden change blew up and right in front of us Esmeralda began to fly - you'll see the result.
