Greetings from Pretoria, South Africa! We hope this forum will be a way by which we can communicate with all who share in our passion: namely Portuguese Maritime history during the 'Carreira da India' period [approx 1480 -1680], the ships and their sailors, trade, shipwrecks, survivor sites and associated artifacts.

Please feel free to use this forum to supply us with comments and suggestions, ask questions or post items which you think might be of interest to all.Our website is still under development and we hope to add items of interest during 2005.

We hope you will all join us in exploring further the exploits of these brave sailors and their small ships.

This is a site for historians, academics, archaeologists, sport divers and 'treasure-hunters' - although we do not agree with any form of treasure-hunting - we realise that we can only maximize knowledge through some form of co-operation.

To all - best wishes for 2005 - may this year be an exciting year with lots of pleasant surprises! Paul Brandt, Valerie Esterhuizen, Andrie MeyerDirectors: CPNS
