HMS RESOLUTION

HMS Resolution was the ship in which Captain James Cook made his second and third voyages of exploration in the Pacific.  The Resolution impressed him so much that he called her "the ship of my choice", and "the fittest for service of any I have seen."

Resolution was launched at Whitby in 1770. She was purchased by the Royal Navy in 1771 and named Resolution on December 25th. HMS Resolution was fitted with the
most advanced navigational aids of the day, including a Gregory Azimuth Compass,
ice anchors and the latest equipment for distilling fresh water from sea water. She carried twelve light 6-pounder guns and twelve swivel guns.

On January 17th 1773, Resolution was the first ship to cross the Antarctic Circle and crossed twice more later.  The third crossing, on February 3rd 1774, was the most southerly penetration, reaching latitude 7110′ South at longitude 10654′ West.

HMS Resolution returned to Britain in 1775. She was recommissioned in February
1776 for Cook's third voyage. On this voyage, Resolution crossed the Arctic Circle on
17 August 1778, and again crossed it on 19 July 1779.  She arrived back in Britain on October 4th 1780. On this voyage, HMS Resolution brought the first Europeans to Hawaiian islands.
