Шхуна-бриг «Пилигрим»
Второго февраля 1873 года шхуна-бриг
On February 2, 1876, the schooner
«Пилигрим» находилась под 43°57′ южной широты и 165°19′ западной долготы от Гринвича.
"Pilgrim" was in latitude 43° 57' south, and in longitude 165° 19' west of the meridian of Greenwich.
Это судно водоизмещением в четыреста тонн было снаряжено в Сан-Франциско для охоты на китов в южных морях.
This vessel, of four hundred tons, fitted out at San Francisco for whale-fishing in the southern seas, belonged to James W.
«Пилигрим» принадлежал богатому калифорнийскому судовладельцу Джемсу Уэлдону; командовал судном в продолжение многих лет капитан Гуль.
Weldon, a rich Californian ship-owner, who had for several years intrusted the command of it to Captain Hull.
Джемс Уэлдон ежегодно отправлял целую флотилию судов в северные моря, за Берингов пролив, а также в моря Южного полушария, к Тасмании и к мысу Горн. «Пилигрим» считался одним из лучших кораблей флотилии.
The "Pilgrim" was one of the smallest, but one of the best of that flotilla, which James W. Weldon sent each season, not only beyond Behring Strait, as far as the northern seas, but also in the quarters of Tasmania or of Cape Horn, as far as the Antarctic Ocean.
Ход у него был отличный.
She sailed in a superior manner.
Превосходная оснастка позволяла ему с небольшой командой доходить до самой границы сплошных льдов Южного полушария.
Her very easily managed rigging permitted her to venture, with a few men, in sight of the impenetrable fields of ice of the southern hemisphere.
Капитан Гуль умел лавировать, как говорят моряки, среди плавучих льдин, дрейфующих летом южнее Новой Зеландии и мыса Доброй Надежды, то есть на более низких широтах, чем в северных морях.
Captain Hull knew how to disentangle himself, as the sailors say, from among those icebergs, which, during the summer, drift by the way of New Zealand or the Cape of Good Hope, under a much lower latitude than that which they reach in the northern seas of the globe.
Правда, это только небольшие айсберги, уже потрескавшиеся и размытые теплой водой, и большая часть их быстро тает в Атлантическом или Тихом океанах.
It is true that only icebergs of small dimensions were found there; they were already worn by collisions, eaten away by the warm waters, and the greater number of them were going to melt in the Pacific or the Atlantic.
