They don't go tremendously fast. They're pretty labour intensive to both maintain and operate. They're hardly practical or affordable for average folks. Yet when a sailboat unfurls its sails and captures the wind, it looks and feels like pure magic.

Even standing on the shore watching this old boat silently slip past, you know something special is going on. Practicalities aside, life on the water would be a neat way to experience the world, don't you think?
