That's a long time to circumnavigate the world - but it's all good when there's no pollution and the military setting of weapons fibration that affects sea mammels

Not only has a renewable energy source - wind - been used for years to circumnavigate, but that renewable energy ultimately comes from the sun, which causes the wind by heating the earth's surface differently in different places. Solar powered boats have been around for thousands of years.

That's great -- but there's a renewable energy source that's been used for years to circumnavigate -- wind.

That's great. But there's a renewable energy source that's been used far often to circumnavigate -- wind.
