How Captain Bengu found the long-lost Endurance
Captain Knowledge Bengu sailed into the history books with the discovery of the Endurance wreck
It’s shortly after 2pm on March 5. Captain Knowledge Bengu, master of the SA Agulhas II, is asleep in his cabin. He’s tired. It’s been a month at sea and he’s just off a six-hour watch. But still Captain Frederick Ligthelm, the ice pilot on duty on the bridge, calls down and disturbs his sleep.
"Captain Bengu," he says. "We have found the Endurance."..
