Re: Longest straight line sail...
This is really interesting and indicates the difficulty of using most map projections to show very long great circles. I wonder if anyone will actually try to sail it, gets a little ice bergy at one point, not to mention piraty.
Here is the same route on a Mercator projection.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
