The Name: TradeWind
Trade Winds are a pattern of wind that are found in bands around the Earth's equatorial region. The trade winds are the prevailing winds in the tropics, blowing from the high-pressure area in the horse latitudes towards the low-pressure area around the equator.
Their name derives from the Middle English 'trade', meaning ‘path’ or ‘track,’ and thus the phrase
‘the wind blows trade,’ that is to say, on track.
The phrase: “Fair winds and Following seas”
Represents the ideal underway conditions for which Sailors yearn.
