Windsails
Sailing the ocean no longer requires triple-masted schooners--in fact
you can do it on a vessel no larger than a surfboard. What's the secret to designing a windsail that can skim the surface of the sea at 20 miles an hour, yet respond instantly to a sailor's touch? It is the math involved in designing such a rig. Motivating for students.
Running time 1:42 minutes.
