Here be dragons

In days gone by when you came to the edge of the known world, to terra incognita or (in the case of the sea) mare incognitum, cartographers were allowed to let their imaginations roam with the depiction of a threatening sea serpents or in some cases the caption “here be dragons”! Today, just off the southern tip of Portland, sadly there are no dragons, just the edge of the scan: the point at which the airborne scanning equipment was switched off as the airplane turned around ready for its next sweep inland. So the area I am interested in, The Race (in the dotted square), is somewhat incomplete, but fascinating none the less… (PS. looks like I have found a boat to go out onto The Race and film it close up. Can’t wait!)
