1715 Fleet Society Directors

The 1715 Fleet Society is the preeminent research organization on 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet, and this website features literally thousands of pages of documents, images, and scholarly observations on the Fleet’s loss and recovery.

We are extremely proud to have such a dedicated board of directors, each who brings a specific focus to this website and the society in general.
