In Real Life, the nations wanted a good trade route with Chinese and Indian nations, and thats why they thought sailing to to the west was a good idea, because they didn't know about the Americas and they thought sailing to the west will get them in India/China. So I changed that to finding new trade routes. Oh yeah and Poland doesn't have a port.
