'Endeavour' The South Coast of Cornwall in September 1997

About this item

Description

'Endeavour' The South Coast of Cornwall in September 1997, it would appear we have entered a time warp. Out of the haze looms a square rigged ship straight out of the eighteenth century. It is in fact an exact replica of Captain Cook's ship, he who in 1770 sailed the unknown South seas to claim Australia and New Zealand for the Crown. The replica was built in Freemantle, Western Australia and commissioned April 1994. Gross tonnage 397, with a crew of 56 about half the original complement.
