 Phoenicia%20reaches%20the%20Comores%20Islands
It was a longer, slower voyage (more...) than originally expected, but they've arrived! Phoenicia, a replica sailing ship from 600 BCE has successfully avoided the pirate zone around Somalia, and reached Mayotte in the Comoros Islands of East Africa. They have detoured via the middle of the Indian Ocean to avoid the threat. Their expedition is aiming to re-create the first circumnavigation of Africa, believed to have been achieved by Phoenician mariners around 600 BCE, and is an approved voyage with the Royal Geographical Society. An article in Sail World.
