circumnavigation of Africa, accomplished by Phoenician mariners in
'Sailing Close to the Wind'
the book of the expedition is now available
Sailing Close to the Wind tells the story of the many set backs in designing and building Phoenicia and how the threat of piracy and sailing around the Cape of Good Hope was overcome in 20,000 mile voyage. All this was set against the backdrop of the Phoenicians almost forgotten maritime civilisation. The book is available on Amazon.co.uk for £9.99 at: Sailing Close to the Wind
