Your thoughts about this video

    

Malcolm Robb
My Grandfather was a pilot in the days of sail. I joined the Merchant Navy as a radio officer in the 70's then progressed to oceanography via positioning of oil platforms, pipelines and now physical oceanography in Spain. The sea is an extraordinary environment and it certainly gets "into your blood" as we can tell from this video. Thanks.
