We’ve always been fascinated with naval history. Along with the advent of the steam engine and key advancements in aviation, sailing ships represent a critical turning point in our history. Empires were built on the back of our ability to sail the seas and naval technology was at the heart of mankind’s last great adventure across the world.
Today, we can connect with anywhere else in the world almost instantly. Global travel and communication is commonplace. But it wasn’t so long ago that foreign lands were exotic, mysterious and unknown and to even attempt to travel to them meant weeks at sea.
