Luggage with sails

Whilst trying to get a roller case to go in the right direction at the beachside, I came up with the idea of luggage with sails.

Admittedly it might mean a great deal of tacking to get from the hotel to the ice-cream stand...it could also work as a naval reenactment team activity, viz British rollercases to act as Nelson' fleet enfilading the French portmanteaus at Trafalgar.

       In that case, there must be cannon - big, heavy, muzzle-loading cannons.   

       But the British didn't "enfilade" the beastly frogs in the strict sense of the word ... doesn't matter though, as long as there was much jolly slaughter of johnny foreigner, which indeed there was.   

       We suggest the inclusion of solid fuel rocket boosters for those occasions when the wind is insufficient.

       The answer, surely, is to have your luggage built from sapient pearwood?

       A suitcase with solid rocket boosters? I'm afraid the space shuttle has already been tried, found wanting and replaced.

       Alternatively, you could stitch your knickers together into a sail. With something to form a mast and half of your clothes forming a main, jib, and tasteful jolly roger, your required suitcase size could shrink substantially.   

       Watch out for panty pirates.
