Pipe-dreams with a profit

I know that this has been discussed before but it's good to see the reality - Cargo by sail! Even better - Wine from France to Dublin!! Betterer and betterer - return cargo of Irish whiskey!!!

It could be that these guys have not only taken engines out of transport but also money out of commerce! (OK, it's not a straight swap.)

'His initiative comes with the French Association of Shipowners predicting that wind-powered vessels could capture 0.5 per cent of the commercial shipping market, which transports 90 per cent of the world's traded goods.'

Now that 0.5% might be a small fraction but it's a small fraction of a very big market.
