Storyboard Text

  • da Gama sets sail from Portugal, hoping to find a sea route to India.
  • da Gama uses the strong winds to set a course south along the coast of Africa.  He then rounds the Cape of Good Hope, and heads toward the Indian Ocean.
  • da Gama arrives in Mozambique, but the Sultan does not appreciate his visit.  The crew have skirmishes with the local people.  He is asked to leave.
  • In Mombasa and Malindi, with the help of a local navigator, da Gama was able to cross the Indian Ocean and reach the coast of Calicut India. 
  • Before they even reach India, most of the crew is infected with scurvy.
  • He finally arrives in India, but is advised to leave soon, because of the impatient monsoon season. When da Gama returns to Portugal, he is greeted as a hero.
