By the wind Sailor
Wonderful to see an image of this creature in Medusa form. I,ve only seen the mature form in 2004 when hundreds were washed up on Pembs beaches. I tried 'sailing' one. It was quite incredible. It sailed a pretty steady course. If one were to remove the rudder from a sailing dinghy it would tend to turn into the wind and 'luff up'.Maybe sail designers could learn something from this creature.
