Jaap Bes is the head volunteer miller at the De Ster Snuff and Spice mill in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Bes stands on the "Stage", a platform midway up the windmill's structure, and adjusts the sails attached to the mills' "wings." Much like the sails on a boat, the tension of the mills' sails can be adjusted to produce the desired operating speed of the mill. (Photo © Jock Fistick)
