Read about this outfit in Popular Science.
Tha age of sail has returned! With the increase in energy costs, it makes a great deal of sense. A 10-15% savings in fuel costs adds up to a lot of cash. Plus, it's cool.

In a (somewhat) related note, I read that the President of Panama is hoping to expand the canal to accomadate larger container ships.
