Captain Hudson was a great sailor of England. A company of London merchants in Jamestown sent out Hudson to discover a shorter passage to China and the Indies. Hudson sailed through North West of England, hoping that he could find a shorter way through North Pole. But he could not find the passage, except mountains of ice. He was the first to go to the North Pole.
The Dutch people in Holland heard about Hudson's voyage they provided a vessel
called "The Half Moon" and asked him to see if he could find a passage to Asia
by sailing to the North East. After Hudson had gone quite long distance, the
sailors refused to go any further, as they were tired by seeing ice and fog.
