43 Degrees South
The name, 43 Degrees, has been chosen due to Adventure Bays Latitude - being that of 43 Degrees South. Historically this Latitude has been an integral part of early maritime history. Adventure Bay, had been used as an anchorage for early European explorers such as Abel Tasman as early as 1642. Following this, Tobias Furneaux, as Captain of the vessel “Adventure”, accompanied Captain James Cook, sailing in the “Resolution”, made anchor in the bay whilst supporting Cook’s voyage of discovery between 1772-1775. Captain William Bligh on the “Bounty” (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) entered Adventure Bay in August 1788 for resupply of Water & Food on route to Tahiti. Later, Captain Bligh would be infamously set adrift by Fletcher Christian and other members of his crew.
“… an integral part of early maritime history.”
