Jersey, 2 pounds, 1972.

The Alexandra, a Jersey sailing ship launched in 1865.

A barque. No signs of steam, though she was built in the steam age. Probably steel hull and masts. A ship for long distances and great speed. Interesting rigging aft.

Belarus. The Sedov.

The Sedov is a Russian steel-hulled and masted barque. It is still sailing but has no connection with Belarus.

Latvian 5 euro issue 2014, for a sailing school. A schooner North, a cutter West, a ketch South and a type I don't know (possible a fisherman's mother ship) East.

Good try, but clippers have four sails on their masts. This is a (probably steel-hulled) merchant frigate.
