THE PREVAILING WINDS AND CURRENTS
OF THE WORLD'S OCEANS AND
THE SEA ROUTES NAVIGATORS
WOULD HAVE USED

The Atlantic Ocean could not have been home to Atlantis 11,500 years ago, but it could have been a sea-way, a virtual conveyor belt to the “lost continent.” It is far easier to sail across the Atlantic from Iberia to the Americas under steady winds and a favouring current than it is to sail even half that distance in the Mediterranean where currents are tricky and winds can blow hard from any direction and then dissipate into a sailors’ nightmare – a complete calm.
