|Ships:||Sailing (1 slot)|
Christopher Columbus (before 31 October 1451 – 20 May 1506) was an Italian explorer, navigator, and colonist who completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain. He led the first European expeditions to the Caribbean, Central America, and South America, initiating the permanent European colonization of the Americas. Columbus discovered the viable sailing route to the Americas, a continent which was not then known to the Old World. While what he thought he had discovered was a route to the Far East, he is credited with the opening of the Americas for conquest and settlement by Europeans. (Source: Wikipedia)

Out of sight, out of mind - this is what I fear the most. What if my wife forgets me? Tell the mayor to build a bust of me in town so I can keep my eyes on her.
|6||Goodbye, Old World!|
It hasn’t even been a month on board and half of the crew is already seasick. We have to drop anchor in the closest bay and get some medicine.

Men overboard!!! We have to rescue them - hurry up and drop the lifeboats. May this disaster be over soon...

Damage is everywhere! Among other things, the anchor is broken too. We need materials for the reparations or we’ll float in the ocean forever.
