North Sydney Sunrise

We are men and women who meet regularly in North Sydney for fellowship, networking and breakfast!

It's a great way to make new friends. We come from many walks of life and backgrounds with a common goal - service to the community (local and worldwide) through fellowship.

27 April 2021  - The Age of Discovery    

Ray Walsh 

Join us on a Voyage of Discovery through the age of discovery. Learn how Europe discovered the wider world and the wider world discovered the Europeans.

Our voyage begins with a look at the Spice Islands. Where are they? What spices were grown there? Why did the Europeans value spices?

What motivated the 15th Century Portuguese to discover a way to visit India and, most importantly, the ability to safely return home? How did they learn to sail thousands of kilometers over open ocean on successful multi-year voyages? What were their advances in ship construction, navigation, cartography, and food storage? How did they pay for their exploration?

Who were the famous explorers? What were they looking for? What did they find?

Ray Walsh discovered computers whilst studying for an English degree in 1980. He then spent 35+ years in the IT industry involved in all facets of the technology including software engineering, networking, and data centres. Since retirement in 2017, Ray has volunteered on the Maritime Museum’s floating fleet and recently taken up boating. His research interests include: Maritime Explorers, the Silk Road, and Ancient China.
