Stories from the Rainbow Warrior: Sailing in Biscay

Greenpeace's first purpose built campaign sailing ship takes a little getting used to whether you're crew or campaigner. With five sails totalling 1288 square metres of sail area she can do 15 knots on wind power alone -- about as fast as the Esperanza can do under engine. That's a lot of sail to handle for a small crew but the modern hydraulic system that sets the sails makes it all manageable as you can see here.
