Centuries of sail craft on the Nile River have taught the Egyptians that there is a benefit from using the wind as a free energy source. The Cruise ships taking tourists from one place to another have to do so quickly so are powered by engines but, why not use the power of the wind when it is in the right direction to save on the amount of fuel being used?
Location: Between Aswan and Luxor, Nile River, Egypt, Africa.
