Pedro’s Journal #1

Right now we are reading a book(We are currently on the fourth chapter) about a boy named Pedro who went on Christopher Columbus’s first journey to America .

In the first chapter , Pedro leaves Spain and goes on his journey.In the second chapter, Pedro talks about how badly tempered the captain is.In the third chapter , They dock in the Canary Islands to fix the Pinta’s broken rudder and it’s  leaks.In the fourth chapter, he talks about his work on the boat.

I learned that there are two kinds of rigging on a sailboat ; a lateen rigging and a square rigging.

I think this is a really good book and I would recommend it to people that like history!
