Found a much smaller garbage patch in the SW Caribbean recently. We were about 100 miles from the western end of the San Blas Islands in Panama and ran into a large region of sargasso weed and plastic. Took us several hours to cross it. Apparently the currents from the east swirl here and plastic comes from all over the Caribbean until it finally is carried west along the coast of Colombia and Panama. Nasty looking to be sure.
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?).
