    ======================
    
    Perhaps that's true, depending on the definition of "navigator".
    
    But he wasn't the first man to circumnavigate the Earth.
    
    That was Henrique, Magellan's Moluccan slave. Captured from his home, 
    by an earlier expedition, he was taken to Lisbon, and then sailed with 
    Magellan. So when he reached the longitude of his birthplace, he had 
    been right round the world, before any of the others.
    
    George.
