Darwin’s great-great-granddaughter recreates historic voyage

The great-great-granddaughter of Charles Darwin has set sail from Devon in an attempt to recreate her forebearer’s historic voyage on the HMS Beagle.

Darwin’s original five-year voyage of discovery on HMS Beagle began in 1831 from Plymouth Sound.

Biologist and botanist Sarah Darwin, 44, will retrace her forefather’s footsteps. “We’re going in his wake, so to speak, visiting pretty much everywhere he went,” Ms Darwin said.
