CHECK THIS OUT!

THIS is a picture of my globe.   I have it in my living room. Canary Current 

What is cool about it is that it shows the currents on the oceans around the world.  You can see that the top righthand corner just under Spain there is a current that runs south and west over Northwest Africa (the Canary Current, to be exact).  On December 12th, 2021 one hundred and seven participants will row across the 3,000 miles it takes to go from the Grand Canary Islands to Antigua in the Caribbean.  They will ride that current as best they can.  Of course, we all know that the wind will be a constant determinant as to how useful the current can be.  This annual race is called the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Campaign.  It is a DOOZY!  You can track it on the Talisker Whiskey website:  Talisker Whisky Atlantic Rowing Challenge – The World’s Toughest Row (taliskerwhiskyatlanticchallenge.com).  I will be keeping an eye on it myself.
