There’s a new RO-RO cargo ship under construction in Turkey, in what may be the first modern cargo ship to embrace sail as its primaryu mode of propulsion. (A RO-RO ship is a ship can can carry vehicles – Roll on, Roll off…)

We’ll talk about what thie new build will be like, and how it compares to the magnificent clipper ships of old, which were pretty darn fast in their own right – fast enough to compete with today’s engine-powered vessels.
