If you sail due east from New York City, which European country do you land in?

Great Britain
Ireland
France
Portugal
Gen­er­al­ly, most of the Western Europe is located farther north than the United States. New York City has pretty much the same latitude as Naples, Madrid or Is­tan­bul. If you sail west from Great Britain (no matter which point you start at), you will land in Canada - the latitude of London cor­re­sponds to the south­ern­most shore of the Hudson Bay!
