Kite Powered Ships?

Recommended Posts

I just found an online article about a company called SkySails (spelling?) and they attached this massive kite (actually a flexible wing) to the front of a cargo ship of 130 Meter length. They sailed from Bremerhaven, Germany to Venezuela and back and saved more than 20% on their fuel use. They should attach these to cruise ships. They would be fantastic to watch and save TONS of fuel!
