In the year 1787 HMS Bounty was sent by the Royal Navy to the Pacific Ocean. The ship's commander was captain William Bligh. His task was to acquire breadfruit plants and bring them to British possessions in the West Indies. After the famous Mutiny on the Bounty on 28 April 1789 Bligh and several of his men were forced to leave the ship. They sailed in an open boat over 3500 miles to the Dutch port of Coupang.
