In the fall of 1519, a fleet of five ships set sail from Seville (Spain) and embarked on what would become one of the most famous sea voyages in world history. Leading the expedition was a Portuguese explorer by the name of Ferdinand Magellan, who would later give name not only to the Strait of Magellan in Chile, but also to the world’s largest ocean. 500 years later, the world is a vastly different place in many ways. There are only a few tall ships left that truly wander the world’s oceans, and there are only few parts of the earth left unexplored. But some things remain the same – the sea which Magellan once sailed is still the same sea, and there are still people in the world coming together in search of adventure, just like Magellan and his crew. Are you one of these people?
Then join us, as we will set sail from Sevilla towards the West to commemorate the 500th anniversary of his historic voyage.
