Abstract

As Wikipedia states: ‘Throughout history sailing has been instrumental in the development of civilisation’. The emergence of the full rigged ship in the early 15th century saw an explosion in open ocean voyaging. The Hakluyt Society’s logo is Ferdinand Magellan’s ship, Victoria – the first ship to circumnavigate the globe. Built by the Basques, renowned boat builders of the time, Victoria was gifted to Magellan by Charles I of Spain. The 85-ton ship had a crew of 42; Magellan never made it home.
