Tradewinds have been used by captains of sailing ships to cross the world’s oceans for centuries. The captain of a sailing ship would seek a course along which the winds could be expected to blow in the direction of travel.
Tradewinds were important in the development of trade and provided a means of transportation and communications to isolated coast communities.
We are still isolated in a sense even with our modern ships, aircraft, telecommunications and the internet. We need a connection from island to island, person to person…and to the rest of the world.
We hope that this Tradewinds will become as important to you as the Tradewinds were to our ancestors, not only to in-landers wanting to know more about the coast, but coastal people learning about other coastal people.
