LargePhoenicia1

The winner of the Spirit of Adventure Award 2019 is Philip Beale  for his "Phoenicians Before Columbus" expedition. The expedition hopes to set sail from Carthage, Tunisia in September 2019 and endeavour to reach the shores of the Americas  with the aim of proving the Phoenicians had the maritime capability and navigational skill to cross the Atlantic 2000 years before Columbus. The voyage is anticipated to last three months but unpredictable Atlantic winds mean that the exact landing place and time cannot be foreseen. The expedition route will take in Gibraltar, Cadiz, Essaouira and the Canaries.
