A Little Sailing History: the Norse, Chris, Nando & Francis

I have always had a penchant for history. At least the type of  history where you find the bold print in the text book and correctly answer the multiple choice question. The whole explorers sailing forth to the edge of the flat earth seemed particularly fascinating. What sort of  amazing men (and women, of certain persuasions) they must have been!

Christopher Columbus  &  Ferdinand Magellan
