The Endurance was launched on December 17, 1912 under the name “Polaris”. It was originally rigged as a frigate. It was subsequently converted into a brigantine. The Endurance was the ship of the famous “Imperial Transantarctic Expedition”, also known as the Endurance Expedition. 27 brave crew members accompanied the legendary polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton between 1914 and 1917.
Following the sinking of the Endurance on August 19, 1915 in the Weddell Sea and trapped in ice, Shackleton along with a few men aboard the ‘James Caird’ boat, a 6.85m open boat, performed one of the most heroic voyages in the history of navigation to South Georgia. The expedition is remembered as an epic tale of heroism and survival. It was the last expedition of the “heroic age of Antarctic exploration” becoming one of the most incredible and heroic epics in history. After being trapped in the ice of the Weddell Sea and enduring winds of up to 300 km / h and temperatures of minus 40 for 522 days, Shackleton and his crew achieved the most important feat of all: surviving. “Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honors and recognition in event of success.” The famous advertisement which Ernest Shackleton ran in the newspaper to recruit men for his Endurance expedition.
