QUEEN SARINAS TREASURE It was a hot summers morning on July 28 1702 in the harbor at Barcelona Spain Captain Cordoba was instructing his crew members on obtaining the remaining needed provisions in preparation for setting sail the next morning That night when all were asleep the Queens guards brought the treasure chest on to the ship Only Captain Cordoba and his 1st Mate knew they would carry Queen Sarinas treasure to the New World Queen Sarina had secretly instructed Captain Cordoba to bring the treasure to the New World Queen Sarina had envisioned controlling the New World with the wealth of her treasure She would purchase land build large fortresses and use her power to control the New World The crew members on the clipper ship The Zaragoza thought they were simply on a trading voyage The voyages would usually involve treading Spanish made hardware tools and utensils for rum tobacco and cotton On the morning of July 29 1702 the Zaragoza set sail She sailed out of the harbor at Barcelona across the Mediterranean Sea through the Straits of Gibraltar and towards the Canary Islands to the southwest Captain Cordoba was curious about the Queens treasure He was able to open the lock on the treasure chest and see what was inside He was amazed at what he found The pearls were as white as clouds drifting through the midnight sky The rubies were as red as the kings velvet cape The emeralds were as green as seaweed floating through sea foam from the swells on the Atlantic Ocean The Sapphires were as blue as the sky on a hot summer day The diamonds were as clear as thin air And there was a massive amount of gold bullion Two days after leaving Barcelona they reached the Canary Islands From the Canaries they sailed toward the West Indies After 24 days of sailing with the trade
