Jamaica and Bermuda!

September 24th, 2012 by Piper Smith

Bermuda was a very important stop to Spanish ships on their way back to Spain on the Gulf Stream. Aiming for Bermuda was essential for verifying their position before laying in their course for the Azores. With this, ensued the wrecking of ships off the coast of Bermuda. Consequently in the early 17th century, the English settled in Bermuda. These Bermudian settlers quickly began to practice wreck salvaging and furthered their searches for shipwrecks to all of the Caribbean islands!
