Welcome to the crew from northern East Yorkshire, Albert.

Albert, Welcome Onboard.
With your sea time, you'll almost certainly meet old shipmates here.
Join in the discussions and make new ones too.

Welcome Albert. I sailed in 'Albatross' after GSN sold her when she was renamed 'Frontier". A fine ship. Cheers, Jock.

To the ancients, "seven" often meant "many," and before the fifteenth century, the many seas of the world were:

the Red Sea
the Mediterranean Sea
the Persian Gulf
the Black Sea
the Adriatic Sea
the Caspian Sea
the Indian Ocean
