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.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
