Miranda (Ship)



The "Miranda" expedition, led by Frederick Cook, was to have explored the western coast of Greenland and the straits. However, ten days out of port, it struck an iceberg and had to put in for repairs. The expedition then sailed to Sukkertoppen on the Greenland coast, where it remained for several days. Upon leaving the harbor the ship struck a reef and was badly damaged. The expedition was relieved by the schooner "Rigel" which when the "Miranda" foundered and sank, took the expedition members on board and returned them to Sydney, Nova Scotia.
