Ok, How do you know were to position the sail to get trust? I know the sail acts like a airplane wing in the sence that when air flows over the inside it slows and increases pressure. the opposite on the outer side. Vernullies Principle right? But how do you possition the sail according to where you want to go and direction of wind?
