The Terra Nova of Scotts Antarctic Expedition Featured Print

The Terra Nova of Scotts Antarctic Expedition

The ship Terra Nova - the vessel used by Robert Falcon Scott (1868 -1912) for his South Polar Expedition in 1911-12. Built originally for the Dundee whaling and sealing fleet (launched 1884), the Terra Nova was purchased from Bowring Brothers Limited for the British Antarctic Expedition, known also as the Terra Nova Expedition, for the sum of 12, 500. Reinforced from bow to stern with seven feet of oak to protect against the Antarctic ice pack, she sailed from Cardiff on 15 June 1910 under overall command of now Captain Scott, who described her as "a wonderfully fine ice ship.... As she bumped the floes with mighty shocks, crushing and grinding a way through some, twisting and turning to avoid others, she seemed like a living thing fighting a great fight."

The Terra Nova, 1903 Featured Print

The Terra Nova, 1903

Photograph of the three-masted barque, Terra Nova, taken in 1903 when she was setting out for the Antarctic to try to find and help the Discovery expedition. Terra Nova was launched in 1884 by Alexander Stephan & Sons Ltd of Dundee for the Dundee whaling and sealing fleet. After proving her worth in that role, she was employed as relief-ship for the Jackson-Harmsworth Arctic expedition (1894-1897) and the Discovery Expedition of 1903. Then, between 1910 and 1913 she was the main vessel of the British National Antarctic Expedition led by Captain Scott
