Final Jeopardy Explanation – Thursday, January 26 2023

In February 1493, after his initial voyage to America, Christopher Columbus made an unplanned stop on Santa Maria Island while sailing back to Spain after his ship Niña was forced to stop there by a storm. The locals met them harshly and a number of his crew members were taken captive, and difficult negotiations were launched to free them. Before he left for Spain, he and his group attended a mass in the old chapel to express their gratitude for their liberation.

The Santa Maria was also the name of the ship which led Christopher Columbus’ voyage to the New World, and it was the largest of the three Spanish ships used by Columbus in his first voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492. When the boat ran aground on a shoal close to Hispaniola and was partially dismantled to get wood for Fort Navidad on the island, the ship was lost.
