Recreating Capt Bligh’s Bounty mutiny sea voyage
Published on April 21st, 2010 | by Admin1
The crew is sailing in a 25ft (7.6m) open-deck boat with two small sails. They are hoping to sail from Tonga to West Timor in seven weeks.
The expedition has tried hard to recreate the conditions which confronted the Royal Navy captain.
Accompanied by 18 men, Bligh managed to sail from near Tonga to West Timor in a voyage that lasted almost 50 days.
He survived by catching fish and drinking rain water.
