Vanishing Gaussian curvature does not mean the sail surface is flat like a board.
Instead, each point on the surface must lie on a straight line. Simple experiments
with a piece of paper cut to the shape of a miniature sail show this. No matter how
you (gently) bend the paper sail, perfectly straight lines traverse the model sail
from one edge to the other. Assume a sail has the simple geometry shown in
Figure 5.6. It is a right triangle, with a luff of height H attached to the mast. The
foot of ...

... the ground drops away steeply to the Deben river below — from where
Redwald's ship and others would have sailed the short distance to the North Sea,
and directly to what is now Denmark. All around still, today, are the undulations of
other mounds in this graveyard of kings and warriors. In the background are
views across distant fields. This would be the last sight of the dead, about to
embark on their final journey down the River Deben and out into the ocean,
sailing to the edge of ...

chief mate and harpoouer, was, during thick showers of snow, sailing by the edge
of a stream of ...
