How was the Sultan of Malindi helpful to Vasco da Gama?
The Sultan of Malindi gave da Gama an Arab pilot (someone who showed you how to get somewhere). This was extremely helpful in getting da Gama to Calicut in India. This was partly because Arabs had become used to the journey from Africa to India and knew how to deal with monsoons.
