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.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Ainia is back in North America for the first time since 2010. Currently in Long Island Sound.
