The ‘Dundee’ Whitby
Soon offers were being made to Scoresby and eventually he finally became commander of the London ship the ‘Dundee’, a much larger vessel than ‘Henrietta’.
In 1798 the Dundee set sail for the Greenland Fishery and returned with an enormous 36 whales. This was Scoresby’s record catch. For 5 years he sailed the ‘Dundee’ having only one bad season.
