Once in a lifetime opportunity - 0º crosses at 0º

The majority of sailors even if they travel around all the oceans seldom get the chance to sail through the intersection of both meridians - where 0º Longitude at Greenwich  crosses 0º Latitude on the prime meridian or equator.

The screengrab shows the chart plotter within minutes and seconds of achieving that feat - made almost impossible by the siting of a French navigation mark buoy to mark the spot!
