This is just an FYI for anyone interested in kiting… i.e. everyone who is reading this smile I ran into this compay http://www.skysails.info/index.php?L=1 a couple years ago in its infant stage doing my grad thesis for zero emissions technology in the mining industry (shipping metal concentrate) and I thought people on here would love to see the commercial possibilities of kiting, beyond the huge airs and wave riding smile  Enjoy.
