Some more mystery sailing ships?

Especially at great sailing events it is possible, that we take photos of ships, which we have never seen before, that are unknown for us or that cannot be identified when exploiting the photos. The following shots were taken by Ken Brack. Perhaps you can help us to identify them. Do you know the following sailing ships? Please write an e-mail to or to . We are thankful for any hint. By the way, you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them. We don't have photos of higher resolution or in better quality so far. But you are the expert! This is a challenge! Can you put a name to these ships?
