Welcome to Magellan class
The Portuguese-born navigator, Ferdinand Magellan, was one of the great explorers of his era - the first European to cross the Pacific Ocean, he also played a crucial role in the first circumnavigation of the world. Did you know that Magellan named the ocean the Pacific? He chose this name, meaning 'peaceful', because it was calm and pleasant when he entered it.
