"The Matthew" replica, Bristol
"The Matthew" replica, Bristol
This replica of the square-rigged caravel "Matthew" was built in Bristol between 1994-96. In 1997 "The Matthew" followed the same course as Giovanni Caboto (a.k.a. John Cabot) in 1497 and sailed to Newfoundland. The caravel (or carvel) is a light sailing ship that the Portugese developed in the late 1400's in order to explore the African coast. The name caravel is derived from the shipbuilding term carvel, which refers to the butting of planks that therefore form a smooth surface on the hull. This type of ship was used for the next 300 years. In 1997 she carried the same number of crew members, took the same route and used the same amount of time to complete the crossing. Here however, visitors are enjoying a short sightseeing trip.
