The Search for the Santa Maria

The search for the Santa Maria is on!

I discovered in a newspaper article today that explorers are once again searching for the Santa Maria.  Recently, an explorer called Barry Clifford thought that he might have found the Santa Maria off the north coast of Haiti. This is in the Caribbean.

About the Santa Maria….

The Santa Maria was Christopher Columbus’ long lost flagship which hit rocks because a cabin boy was left in charge of steering one night.

The new search….

Following Barry Clifford’s announcement the United Nations’ cultural and scientific organization (Unesco) looked closely at the wreck and said that it was not the Santa Maria but that it could be nearby.  Unesco are now about to start their own big search.

I am going to keep an eye  out for the next report.
