Boats on the Harbour

There are many boats of all sizes on Sydney harbour - from little training sailing boats to big pug-ugly cruise ships. This means the commute on the ferry from Manly to Sydney is always interesting

A Moth sailing dingy. They now sail on a hydrofoil centreboard, and are extremely fast

South Passage, a gaff rigged sailing schooner.

If you're in too much of a hurry to catch a ferry you can call a water taxi

A general work barge, the Boronia

The SKS Donggang, a crude oil carrier

A famous yawl: Kialoa2, a boat I remember from many Sydney to Hobart
races in the 1970s, and still competing. Here it's practicing for the 2017 race

If you should ever find yourself on the Manly ferry keep your camera to hand - you never know what you might see
