Mediterranean and Black Sea Place Names
« on: March 27, 2013, 07:24:06 pm »
I'll work on reformatting this one too ::) ;)

Useful reference: Mediterranean Pilot, Volume 4. And this one will lead you to many more ;)

Mediterranean place names.

CAUTION: There are many places with the same name! So, the one(s) listed here may not be correct for you.

I have had to remove diacritical marks that displayed as '?'.

In Greek:
Saint = Agios
Island = Nisos
Islands = Nisides
Bay, Gulf, Harbor = Ormos, Kolpos, Limin

Hi Joan,

About Cape Negro and Negra Point (maybe the same place): http://books.google.it/books?id=YhoPAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA196&lpg=PA196&dq=&source=bl&ots=T7kR9vWGnG&sig=DRRFpRcTr5z9YftvImE_yrSW7Wc&hl=it&sa=X&ei=tP6IUZvdMceIONisgEA&ved=0CDMQ6AEwATgK#v=snippet&q=%22GREAT%20BAY%20of%20CEUTA%22&f=false (hoping it opens page 8 of the book - describing the Bay of Ceuta):

Quote
The Great Bay of Ceuta, formed by the Almina Point in the North, and Cape Negro in the South, is 11 miles long in that direction, and 3 in depth. Ships of all sizes may anchor, in any requisite depth, almost through its whole extent, near the shore. The Bay of Tetuan extends to the southward from Cape Negro to Cape Tetuan or Mazari, a distance of 3 leagues, and is similar to that of Ceuta. In both, vessels are completely sheltered from westerly winds, but every precaution must be taken against winds blowing on shore. Should it not be thought advisable to anchor, a ship may keep under sail, on different tacks, in winter as well as summer, so as to be ready to take advantage of the first breeze of easterly wind, which may lead thence to and through the Strait.

On mapcarta there's a Foret de Capo Nigro near the location now named Ras el Aswad: http://mapcarta.com/17422482

Bingo Matteo! Thanks ever so much.  The only log book page to mention those places did lead me to think it might be somewhere near to Ceuta but the navigation direction was down as 'as requisite' just when I really needed to know what direction she was heading in as she took (literally) a spin around the Alboran Sea. I tried all sorts of history sources - I'm glad you found it. I'll put that into the edit.  Yeeeeha!  ;D

List above adjusted - thanks again,
Joan

According to Manica's Noon position it is the "Punta Spadillo" light house on Pantelleria Island.
