The triangle trade puzzled me at a gut level: yes, immense profits, but so much effort?

Makes much more sense when the trade winds are given their due. Really cool.

    I’ve understood about the trade winds and they currents they drive nearly my whole life (grew up around boats, and reading things like the Hornblower saga) but that is a seriously cool wind-map. It’s the sort of things nations would go to war to obtain 400 years ago because of it’s huge military and economic importance.
