• The story of seafaring is a story of advenĀ­ture, courage and ingenuity that ranges far beyond the need to transport goods across the oceans. The moment people were able to move long distances at sea, they became less isolated. Along with their cargoes came other people and new ideas. The resulting interaction would shape the face of the world.
Maritime history tends to focus on western achievements, as if there were no seafarers of consequence elsewhere. Nothing could be further from the truth, with the achievements of Polynesian, Arab, Indian and Chinese navigators no less impressive than those of their western counterparts. SETTING SAIL pays equal tribute to their contributions, providing a revealing multi-cultural look at the story of people and the sea.
