Re: Sailing in the North Atlantic
We see them quite regularly up here on the north shore of Lake Superior (Northwestern Ontario). Sadly, I've yet to had a good display from our boat, just some silver shimmer. I've seen the full colour dance a few times. Always amazing.
Interestingly, we're apparently near the peak of the solar 11-year cycle, yet I've seen almost no displays. Perhaps I'm older this cycle, so am going to bed too early, but it has been a dud for me so far.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
