'Marigold' heads upstream towards Osea Island, in conditions of very light winds.

Technically, Marigold is said to be bawley-rigged rather than smack-rigged, because (as can be seen from the picture) her mainsail is rigged without a boom. While very much in the East Coast tradition, she is a latter-day 'gaffer', built by David Patient at Maldon in 1981. Link
