©A. J.Villiers UNDER ALL SAIL IN THE DOLDRUMS The Parma did not carry a full spanker, but merely a trysail, because a larger stern sail on the jigger-mastwould have been unwieldy. The vessel looks very deep in the water, which she was, with nearly 5,500 tons of wheat in her hold, but the deepness is accentuated here bythe fact that she isshown in the trough of a long Atlantic swell. The swells in the Pacific are even longer.
