The largest sailing ships in the world

During the past summer, the Mediterranean Sea has reappeared the Royal Clipper which, with its 134 feet long and 56 feet wide, ranks among the largest sailing ships in the world.

Its square sails are easily spotted from the Italian coasts, where they arouse the curiosity and fantasies of holidaymakers and tourists.

This extraordinary boat is nothing more than a luxury cruise ship and is not the only one to have such dimensions.

Getting on such a sailboat is not within everyone's reach and, considering how much it costs to buy a sailing ship, not even buy it.

However, there are boats with one or more sails, whose navigation can be simple and often manageable even by a small crew, sometimes even by a single man.
