James Cook, the great discoverer of the Pacific region, was born in 1728 as the son of a farmer. Over a number of years he acquired nautical experience and in 1755 joined the British Royal Fleet where he made it to the rank of a master within a short period of time. In 1768 he was handed over the command of a scientific exploration trip to the South Pacific.Its solid structure made it extremely seaworthy. In order to accommodate a group of astronomers and scientists, the vessel was modified considerably.
The Endeavour left Plymouth with direction of Cape Horn and reached its port of destination, Tahiti in April 1769. After completion of the necessary scientific studies Cook went on towards New Zealand, where he remained until the end of March 1770, 2400 miles of coastline were recorded.
