This kind of sail not only can solve all these problems , but it can be used in the night.
The hem of sail can be shining by a new material.In the daytime , this kind of material can invert the sunshine into electricity in the cell.
This kind of sail could offer you many ways to play on the sea , so you could subconsciously find the fun of living.
