The need for windship research in Europe. Southampton, UK, University of Southampton, 12pp.
(Ship Science Reports, (25) ).
This informal preliminary paper seeks to provide information on an area of European economic activity associated with wind-assisted propulsion for ships. Wind-assist devices are now being produced as prototypes in at least three European countries and are already well established products in Japan. It is suggested that the CEC consider taking an interest in this field, with a view to improving the position of the European manufacturing and shipping industries.
