On the second leg, ships made the journey of the Middle Passage from Africa to the New World. Once the slave ship reached the New World, enslaved survivors were sold for a good profit in the Caribbean or American colonies.
The ships were then prepared to get them thoroughly cleaned, drained, and loaded with export goods for a return voyage, the third leg, to their home port.From the West Indies the main export cargoes were sugar, rum, and molasses; from Virginia, commodities were tobacco and hemp.
