THE SAIL

The invention of the sail

What older sails looked like

Here are some quotes "To reach a port, we must sail - sail, not tie at anchor - sail, not drift"

Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

― H. Jackson Brown Jr.

You may also wonder what are the down sides to using sails? Well sails are moved by the wind so if the wind changes it can blow you off course and stand you.

You may also wonder what are the upsides to using sails? sails have let us enjoy the wind and beauty of the ocean and let people be out on sea and enjoy it and not have to go so fast
