    300th anniversary
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2007 Oct 23, 06:38 -0400

    So it's here. It's three hundred years since Sir Cloudesley Shovell's fleet
    slammed into the rocks off the Isles of Scilly killing at least 1400 men and
    launching perhaps as many stories and legends; some true, some not. It was
    October 22-23 in the year 1707. But this was a Julian calendar date, the
    "true" anniversary is eleven days later. That should give us some time to
    discuss again the significance of the shipwrecks for the history of
    navigation.
    
    Here's a little quote from timesonline.co.uk from yesterday in an article
    entitled 'Sir Cloudesley: a tribute': "Surprisingly, the spread of errors in
    latitude were greater than those in longitude."
    
    Well that ain't right!
