“As many trades, as many ships.” This principle has been true almost since the beginning of shipping, and although currently the main propulsion in conventional shipping is with diesel engines, even now there are al lot of different specialised vessels. For the future of sail cargo, it will not be different. The wind is of course a given, but on different routes and climatic circumstances one might want to alter the sail configuration or hull shape. This week a score of options will be presented.
At current many different sail technologies are proposed to be implemented for sail cargo.
