  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Vasco da Gama
In 1502 Gama was again sent out, with his uncle Vicente Sodré and his nephew Estevão, and a new fleet of twenty ships, to safeguard the interests of the commercial enterprises established in the meantime in India by Cabral, and of the Portuguese who had settled there.
On the outward voyage he visited Sofala (East Africa), exacted the payment of tribute from the Sheikh of Kilwa (East Africa), and proceeded with unscrupulous might, and even indeed with great cruelty, against the Arabian merchant ships and the Samudrian (or Zamorin) of Calicut.
He laid seige to the city, annihilated a fleet of twenty-nine warships, and concluded favourable treaties and alliances with the native princes.

In the end, he managed to get an invitation to trade from the zamorin, the local king.
Da Gama returned to Portugal in 1499, and the next year a new expedition was sent to India, this time led by Pedro Alvares Cabral.

 Hort 306 - READING 26-1
A logbook kept by an unidentified sailor with da Gama’s fleet records that the zamorin sent a message to King Manuel, written with an iron pen on a palm leaf, the tenor of which was: "Vasco da Gama, a gentleman of your household, came to my country, whereat I was much pleased.
King Manuel, seeing at once the opportunity to add new colonies to his kingdom and to make Lisbon the Venice and the Genoa of the West, was understandably eager to develop trade relations with the zamorin.
Hurriedly he fitted out a fleet of 13 caravels and on March 9, 1500, sent it on Portugal’s first merchant voyage to India, under the command of Pedro Alvarez Cabral (1460-1526).
