Amazing View of Ocean Currents

From a very young age we've all learned about ocean currents such as the Gulf Stream.  Ben Franklin was one of the early folks to write about it in detail.  For thousands of years sailors have been making their way about the planet using ocean currents to their advantage when ever possible.  Sailboat racers spend a lot of time, energy, and thought plotting the best way to cross the Gulf Stream on their way to Bermuda.  Finding that perfect spot to cross the steam often results in trophies and accolades at the the finish line.  So in prepartion for your next ocean voyage check out this video to get the most comprehensive and condensed view the our planet's ocean currents.
