What’s that Giant Sucking Sound Down Under?

BLDGBLOG had a great post today about a giant eddy recently discovered off the coast of Australia.


Somebody better get the word out to Reid Stowe on Schooner Anne so that he can make sure not to sail into it and never be seen again.

Speaking of Stowe, earlier this week he passed 333 of his planned 1,000 days at sea. Strangely, his post for that day didn’t even mention this major milestone. Ever since Soanya evacuated from the Mars Ocean Odyssey, the writing style and tone of the blog have take strange turn. The marvels of modern technology gives us a regular glimpse into the life of long distance/duration solo sailor. It’s getting darkly interesting.

  1. In the Michael Powell film, I Know Where I Am Going, there is a great scene of a small motor boat, 1930’s vintage, and an eddy off the coast of Scotland. It is a great little movie that also has a sub-plot dealing with danger and judgment at sea. Michael Powell has another fine film that takes place in the Scottish isles called The Edge of the World, that captures some what of what it is like to live in the isolation of a North Atlantic island.
