Lots of sail up that appears not completely unfilled, but she looks completely stationary?

Well, my image of her, what I see here, does not show any definition around the bow or the stern, so I can't be sure of speed, but sail shape suggests that they are gurguling, at least. I seem to detect a slight heel.

If you look at the flag at the masthead it looks like she is sailing as far into the wind to keep her sails filled and thus it would appear as slow as she can for the photograph to be taken.

I don't think that they had super fast shutters of film at that time. :ycool:
