The future?

The comeback of sailing ships has long been predicted. There are problems (detailed in this article) but expect they will in fact make some sort of comeback as we move away from fossil fuels. Perhaps dirigibles will too.

It is surprisingly difficult to build a carbon neutral sailing ship. This is even more the case today, because our standards for safety, health, hygiene, comfort, and convenience have changed profoundly since the Age of Sail.
