Phoencian Ship Expedition
The Phoenician Ship Expedition launched from Arwad, Syria in August 2008, to sail through the Suez Canal, and into the Red Sea. Phase One of the expedition was completed in January 2009 when Phoenicia reached the Republic of Yemen. Phase Two launched in August 2009 to sail round the Horn of Africa and down the east coast. Negotiating the dangers of the Cape of Good Hope was a critical point in the expedition. The voyage continued up the west coast of Africa, through the Straits of Gibraltar and across the Mediterranean to return to the Lebanon and Syria in October 2010. In total the circumnavigation covered over 20,000 nautical miles. Phase Three of the Phoenicia project involved sailing the ship to the UK in spring 2012. This voyage retraced the ancient Phoenician trading route with the Cornish. View Phoenicia 's route and read her blogs along the way. Phoenicia is now in St Katharine Docks, London, having arrived there on Wednesday 30th May 2012. She is positioned along side Starbucks (rotunda) and will be opened as a floating exhibition The Phoenicians: The Greatest Ancient Sailors from 16th June - 30th September.
