Mamoli Golden Hind
The 'Golden Hind' took its name from the golden figure appearing on the coat-of-arms of Lord C. C. Hatton's family, who fi nanced Sir Francis Drake's circumnavigation of the globe. Smaller galleon, the 'Golden Hind' was not different, as far as the construction is concerned, from the ships of its class. Sober lines, contained sizes, absence of decorations with the exception of the transom, low foredeck and classic masting. On the 1 3th of December 1 577 Sir Francis Drake, on board of the galleon 'Golden Hind', together with other four ships, set out for the most famous voyage of the English naval history. After crossing with difficulty the Straits of Magellan, owing to the dreadful storms in which two of the ships were wrecked, he moored in the port of Valparaiso. Afterwards he followed the coasts of Chile and Perù plundering Spanish ports and ships and catching an enormous loot. He then went up as far as California, probably trying to discover the so long searched North-West passage.
He continued his voyage in the direction of the Moluccas and of Java, doubled the Cape of Good Hope and returned to England after three years, completing his voyage around the world.
