Engaging with the science of nautical engineering and the power of the currents of the sea these dice are really exciting. I also read the pollution of the sea in this work, as the sailors who travers our oceans regularly report sightings of ‘lost’ shipping containers which float a couple of meters below the surface, invisible to the eye. Not to mention the more invisible dangers of micro-plastic particles which are more indirect (to us – direct danger to sea life)
I love following their progress here. They are moving surprisingly fast, and ironically following the path of the current Vendee solo sailing race- they might comfort/ surprise/ hole a lonely competitor??
