The boat Little Murka with pink kite out in front and Dom Mee at the helm, tiny amid the towering storm seas of the both Atlantic

Dom made some progress at the tail end of yesterday. However he had to go back onto his much trusted sea Anchor as the wind changed to Easterly. Not wanting to go backwards he is holding ground again. The forcast is for the wind to change soon thus freeing Little Murka from the grip of the Grand Banks. Dom sends love to all keep the messages flowing they are all good for morale.

In answer to some of the schools related questions via email, below is a description of the Grand Banks & attached a closer map for reference. Thank you Google!! I could not have put it better…

map showing Newfoundland and the Grand Banks

The Grand Banks of Newfoundland are located off the southeast coast of the province. In this area, the continental shelf is exceptionally wide. The Grand Banks is a 730-kilometre stretch of shallow continental shelf that extends as far as 480 kilometres from the coast. These banks are submarine plateaus that rise from the underlying continental shelf, to just 25-100 metres below the ocean surface. The average depth of these banks is around 150 metres, but there are many troughs in the shelf floor of glacial origin that are as deep as 200 metres or more.
