THE TALL SHIPS IN PHOTOGRAPHS by Frank O. Braynard (Dover: $12.95; 127 pp., paperback original). Braynard recounts the misadventures and good luck that enabled him to organize the OpSail Tall Ship rally in 1964. OpShip proved so successful, similar events were held in 1976, 1986 and 1992, and additional rallies are planned for 1994 and 2000. But Braynard's amusing tales are eclipsed by the extraordinary elegance of the sailing ships from various countries: Their consummate grace will captivate even the most adamant landlubber.
