Italia explorer, Christopher Columbus set sail on three ships.These were named the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Nina.
Christopher Columbus had three ships when he left Spain. The namesof the ships were the Nina, Santa Maria, and the Pinta.
There were three ships that sailed with Christopher Columbus. Thenames of the ships were the Santa Maria, Nina, and the Pinta.
The three ships of Columbus were called the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.
Yes, Christopher Columbus sailed three ships and the smallest one was the Pinta, I think.
Caravels, I should imagine. I know the Nina and the Pinta (sp?) were both caravels, but the Santa Maria was a larger class of ship. Caravels were great for exploration, as they had a shallow draft, allowing them to sail in much shallower water(could even sail up some deep rivers) and as such, I shou…ld imagine that they would be what any explorer would use. The flagship Santa Maria had the nickname La Gallega. It was a nao, which simply means "ship" in old Spanish; today, we might call such a ship a carrack. She was fat and slow, designed for hauling cargo, not for exploration. Some sources say that the Santa Maria was about 100 tons. I saw the copy of the ship that used to be moored at the Barcelona harbour, and it is pretty scary to think that she was the biggest of the three ships that sailed to the unknown in 1492.

Christopher Columbus set sail with a fleet of three ships. Theseships were the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.
On the first voyage, Columbus was treated as a hero. But then as he went on his second voyage, Christopher made a colony on El Salvador, (The Savior) He governed it. He was very cruel, cutting of ears and noses if any one stole, and the people grew afraid, and wrote to the king and queen of Spain. T…he rulers were notified and grew worried. Columbus was made a prisoner in his own colony, until a ship to bring him to Spain took him there. Then his reputation and money was terrible, no body liked him, and he was financially in dept. He was a ruined man, and it was not until two decades after his death would we realize he was guilty of finding the Americas. ( Full Answer )

Christopher Columbus was on a total of four voyages. The fourthvoyage was to the New World, which was in the Caribbean.
Probably not. Books as we know them weren't available until after the inventing of moveable-type printing. Prior to that books were copied laboriously by hand. It's more likely that he learned about ships because he was from Genoa - a very important seaport and trading city in the Middle Ages.…. ( Full Answer )

Yes. It crashed near Portugal and he swam all the way to land. He considered it a blessing by god.

It would be accurate and correct to say that he used the caravel -which he did, as two out of three of his ships were caravels, which were a newly developed lighter, faster ship. ( Full Answer )
Columbus led his three ships - the Nina , the Pinta and the Santa Maria - out of the Spanish port of Palos on August 3, 1492. His objective was to sail west until he reached Asia (the Indies) where the riches of gold, pearls and spice awaited. His first stop was the Canary Islands where the lac…k of wind left his expedition becalmed until September 6. Once underway, Columbus benefited from calm seas and steady winds that pushed him steadily westward (Columbus had discovered the southern "Trades" that in the future would fuel the sailing ships carrying goods to the New World). However, the trip was long, longer than anticipated by either Columbus or his crew. In order to mollify his crew's apprehensions, Columbus kept two sets of logs: one showing the true distance traveled each day and one showing a lesser distance. The first log was kept secret. The latter log quieted the crew's anxiety by under-reporting the true distance they had traveled from their homeland. This deception had only a temporary effect; by October 10 the crew's apprehension had increased to the point of near mutiny. Columbus headed off disaster by promising his crew that if land was not sighted in two days, they would return home. The next day land was discovered. A New World is Revealed Columbus's journal of his first voyage to America has been lost. However, we do have an accurate abstract of the journal written by Bartolome de las Casas in the 1530s. Las Casas was an historian and Columbus's biographer who had access to the original journal of the voyage. We join Columbus's account as his expedition approaches the islands of the Bahamas. Throughout the account, Columbus refers to himself in the third person as the "Admiral": "Thursday October 11 The course was W.S.W., and there was more sea than there had been during the whole of the voyage. They saw sand-pipers, and a green reed near the ship. Those of the caravel Pinta saw a cane and a pole, and they took up another small pole which appeared to have been worked with iron; also another bit of cane, a land-plant, and a small board. The crew of the caravel NiÃ±a also saw signs of land, and a small branch covered with berries. Everyone breathed afresh and rejoiced at these signs. The run until sunset was 27 leagues. After sunset the Admiral returned to his original west course, and they went along at the rate of 12 miles an hour. Up to two hours after midnight they had gone 90 miles, equal to 22 1/2 leagues. As the caravel Pinta was a better sailer, and went ahead of the Admiral, she found the land, and made the signals ordered by the Admiral. The land was first seen by a sailor named Rodrigo de Triana. But the Admiral, at ten o'clock, being on the castle of the poop, saw a light, though it was so uncertain that he could not affirm it was land. He called Pero Gutierrez, a gentleman of the King's bedchamber, and said that there seemed to be a light, and that he should look at it. He did so, and saw it. The Admiral said the same to Rodrigo Sanchez of Segovia, whom the King and Queen had sent with the fleet as inspector, but he could see nothing, because he was not in a place whence anything could be seen. After the Admiral had spoken he saw the light once or twice, and it was like a wax candle rising and failing. It seemed to few to be an indication of land; but the Admiral made certain that land was close. When they said the Salve, (Salve Regina) which all the sailors were accustomed to sing in their way, the Admiral asked and admonished the men to keep a good look-out on the forecastle, and to watch well for land; and to him who should first cry out that he saw land, he would give a silk doublet, besides the other rewards promised by the Sovereigns, which were 10,000 maravedis to him who should first saw it. At two hours after midnight the land was sighted at a distance of two leagues." Columbus ordered the three ships to halt and wait for daylight before venturing further. His journal continues: "Friday October 12 The vessels were hove to, waiting for daylight; and on Friday they arrived at a small island of the Lucayos, called, in the language of the Indians, Guanahani. Presently they saw naked people. The Admiral went on shore in the armed boat, and Martin Alonso Pinzon, and Vicente Yanez, his brother, who was captain of the NiÃ±a. The Admiral took the royal standard, and the captains went with two banners of the green cross, which the Admiral took in all the ships as a sign, with an F and a Y and a crown over each letter, one on one side of the cross and the other on the other. Having landed, they saw trees very green, and much water, and fruits of diverse kinds. The Admiral called to the two captains, and to the others who leaped on shore, and to Rodrigo Escovedo, secretary of the whole fleet, and to Rodrigo Sanchez of Segovia, and said that they should bear faithful testimony that he, in presence of all, had taken, as he now took, possession of the said island for the King and for the Queen his Lords, making the declarations that are required, as is now largely set forth in the testimonies which were then made in writing." Shortly after landing, many of the island's inhabitants assembled on the beach and Columbus gave them gifts of red hats and beads. The natives reciprocated with gifts of parrots, cotton and other goods. In describing the natives, Columbus wrote: "They go as naked as when their mothers bore them, and so do the women, although I did not see more than one girl. They are very well made, with very handsome bodies, and very good countenances." ( Full Answer )
He left in 1492, found Hispaniola 32 days later, and got back home in 1492. He wasn't gone more than 80 days tops. So he left in 1492 and got back in 1492.
Christopher Columbus used several ships. On his first voyage he sailed on the Santa Maria until it hit a reef and sank, he then sailed the Pinta back to Europe. He used other ships in his pater voyages.
Columbus' first trans Atlantic exploration was aboard the Santa Maria (along with the Pinta and the NiÃ±a)
Columbus didn't have any ships of his own. He had to go to the Kingand Queen of Spain to convince them to pay for his explorations.
That question is easy for for me. And I'm only 10!!! Christopher Columbus had three ships. One named Nina one named Santa Maria and one named Pinta.
Columbus was never involved in the triangluar trade. There is about 200 years difference between the two.
grammar like this makes me want to cry... should be... "How MANY ships DID Christopher Columbus have?" The Nina The Pinta The Santa Maria have a good day ^^
The names of the ships which Columbus sailed in his travels to America were Santa Maria, Pinta and Nina
Columbus's three ships had a total crew of ninety men--85 Spaniards, four Italians and one Portuguese.
in your butt . Christopher Columbus had more than one ship. He had three, named the Santa Maria, the Nina, and the Pinta. All three of them, as far as I know, have been destroyed, but I think, if my memory serves my right, there is a replica of the Nina. All three of the ships sailed in 1492..
The named of Christopher Columbus's ships were the Pinta, Santa Maria, and the Nina . .
It was Cortez who ordered his ships burned in 1519 before leading his men to battle against the Aztecs in orders to take away their ability to retreat.
The ship names were the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. He did not sail to America and never knew it existed. He landed on the island Hispaniola and thought he was in India.
He had three ships all given to him by Prince Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. The Santa Maria, the Pinta and the Nina. The Nina and the Pinta both sank around 1470-1480. They had collided with other ships. The Santa Maria had survived ( which was the last boat left ) and was used to travel back to Spa…in with Columbus and the other 120 men on board. ( Full Answer )
they ate and drank water vinegar wine olive oil molasses cheese raisins rice garlic sea food fish...........
very difficult and crazy. Some of his crew were about to rebel if they didn't see signs of land soon, so he was in danger the whole time.
His last voyage was in 1502-04 and he was stranded on an island off the coast of Porta Rico. He was there for 2 years with his youngest son. When he was finally rescued he was sick and died in 1506. He was buried in Seville, Spain. So, you could say he quit sailing in 1504.
It depends on which of the three ships that he brought with him on his first trip. The Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
Despite popular belief, Colombus never actually set foot in the Americas. Colombus landed at several islands in the Carribean Sea. At that point he and his men abducted many natives to be brought back to Spain as slaves.
He convinced Spain he could get to Asia faster, (and the very valuable spices that were there), by sailing West, around the world, than the time it would take to get to Asia by traveling to the East. Unfortunately for Christopher Columbus, the Earth was bigger than he thought it was and he reached t…he Americas, instead of Asia, by sailing West. It was one of the greatest failures in the history of the human race. Columbus failed to reach Asia, but, he got to the Americas, and other explorers who might have gotten to the Americas (Leif Erickson, Viking for example) had no impact on the world as a result of their discovery.

I dont know thats why i came here to see if someone answered it .
One was an "offical" and the other personal. He gave the offical one to the crown and kept the other for his use.
The names of the ships were la Santa Clara, la Pinta, la Santa Maria/Gallega. The crew renamed the ships to the Nina (the girl, or rather, the "working" girl); the Pintada (or the "painted" one; i.e. the girl wearing make-up, in other words, the prostitute) and the Maria Galante (the surname of anot…her "lady of leisure"). The church censored the nicknames to more christian names which are now considered "true history" ( Full Answer )
