Sir Francis Drake Exploration Society

Sir Francis Drake Exploration Society I've been surprised discovering this society, founded for the 400th anniversary of Drake's death (1540?- 1596). The aim is to perpetuate the memory of Sir Francis Drake, first Englishman to circumnavigate the world and well know for defeating the spanish, especially the great Armada in 1588.
He won so many battles, but died of dysentery in the West Indies. The contrast is hard.

Also, we leave tomorrow for Nice, short journey, off, have one night at the Holiday Inn Resort at Saint-Laurent du Var, we'll probably go the evening to Monaco to have served this great napolitan pizza in the italian restaurant we've discovered when we were at the Monaco Yacht Show in september,and monday morning we leave for Asti where we have our supplier (Italy). We come back the same day, at night.
I'm so happy having this one day off. The bad side is we will drive the Renault Kangoo, it's necessary to bring back the stuff. Never mind !
