Speaking of Inaccessible Island. At least three confirmed shipwrecks have occurred off the coast. . The first, and most dramatic, was that of Blenden Hall, a British ship which set sail in 1821 with 54 passengers and crew aboard heading to Bombay (Mumbai). . Captain Alexander Grieg intended to sail past Saint Helena, but adverse currents carried her to Tristan da Cunha. . She got caught in seaweed on July 22nd & drifted aground on Inaccessible Island. All but two of those aboard survived the shipwreck. . They spent the next four months subsisting on wild celery, seals, penguins, and albatross. . They managed to build a boat some months later. The first attempt to sail to Tristan failed, resulting in the loss of six people; but the second attempt alerted the Tristanians to their plight. . The remainder were then brought to Tristan, where the brig Nerina arrived about two months later and took most to Cape Town, South Africa. . The other two shipwrecks are the wreck of Shakespeare at Pig Beach in 1883, and Helen S Lea at North Point in 1897. . When Corporal William Glass and his family became the first settlers at #TristandaCunha in 1816, goats and pigs were brought to Inaccessible Island to serve as a source of food. Some domestic animals remained for at least 57 years and helped to keep the Stoltenhoff brothers alive during their expedition, but they have now died out. Cattle, sheep, and dogs were also introduced to the island at various points in the island's history, but none remain. . Inaccessible is perhaps best known for the Inaccessible rail, the world's smallest living flightless bird. . For more #Globefacts relating click back to the two previous posts. Source : Wikipedia. .
