    Again, the question … Dr. Ol … le Baaba … why?
    At least he doesn’t have the neck rings or the lip extenders… but you have to begin pretty early with either.

    So you go to Australia for camel rides, not the middle east……………..How does that guy do anything, with all that crap on his head ?

    Here is a video of the Vestas Sail Rocket

    They call it a wind turbine, but I’m still wondering how any wind powered vehicle can go any faster than the prevailing wind. The physics doesn’t add up.

    Not exactly correct in one aspect. The camels are FERAL (They have domesticated ancestors that were released or escaped) , they are not native to Australia so can’t be described as WILD.

    I is hard to explain but everybody that has sailed a boat knows that the slowest going is with the wind right on your back. Like squeezing a watermelon seed and sending it across a room with a tiny movement of your fingers.

    If Dr. Le Baaba rented ad space on his head as well, he could compete with that idiot from Austin, Tx, who was featured in last week’s BION.

    Would any of those camels walk a mile for a human?!?

    sailing physics seem kinda weird at first blush. the sail actually pulls the hull through the water, the wind doesn’t push it.

    74 mph is barely hurricane-force.

    One of our stops on our trip to Australia was at Camels Australia, near Stuart Wells, on the highway from Alice Springs to Uluru. What I remember most about the place was their old pet dingo, which was as tame as any regular dog.

    Le Baaba is a Guru at best not a Doctor. Interesting, but a spouter of new age babble.

    It’s the physics of the force of the wind transferred to the hull and keel. The fastest direction is almost perpendicular to the wind, which causes the hull and keel to essentially “slip” sideways through the water. Similar to what N7326 Foxtrot described with his watermelon seed analogy…

    How fast has an ice boat gone?

    When they are feral they are wild. Semantic distinctions without a real difference.
