Gaff-rigged skiffs, racing. I've been fascinated by the shape of these boats ever since I saw one in a 1930s picture on the brag wall of the Sydney Flying Squadron (Australia's oldest open boat sailing club). Modern racing skiffs are a wonderful sight on Sydney Harbour - looking like a flight of water-borne butterflies. My entry in the Sailing (palette-restricted) Contest.

The 18 ft Skiff is considered the fastest class of sailing skiffs and has a long racing history, beginning on Sydney Harbour, Australia in 1892 and a bit later in New Zealand. Although the boat has changed significantly since then, with many technological innovations, the class is popular with sailors of modern 18 ft skiffs looking for a challenge because "modern boats have become too easy to sail" (quoting John Winning, a class champion) (Wikipedia).

Hand drawn and line art, designed as a basic repeat.
