Expedition Route


The aim of the expedition is to sail Phoenicia to the Americas starting in Gibraltar in September 2017 and arriving a few months later. The exact end point cannot be foreseen due to the vagaries of the Atlantic winds. Indeed it will be very interesting to see where Phoenician ships were most likely to make landfall having left the Canary Islands.
