Sailboats are an interesting subject in this regard since they are divided 
into two groups; those dedicated to the history of sail, and those deeply 
immersed in cutting edge advanced technology when it comes to the modern 
sailboat. All one needs is to look at the aerodynamics engineering in sail, 
foil, and hull design, as well as computers &  electronics used in 
America’s Cup boats, the Volvo Ocean Race yachts, or contempory cruise 
sailboats. With you in NZ, where modern sailboat technology is quite a big 
thing, not exactly a fading tech.

I concede that the Clipper Ship is dead. Sadly from a commercial veiwpoint 
they just couldn’t compete with steam, or today with massive container 
ships, but they will remain things of grace and beauty. We are fortunate that 
a handful of examples remain today, along with a few modern sail cruise 
boats.
