On this day …….. 30th of January 1815

Captain James Kelly, made his name circumnavigating Tasmania with a crew of four men in a five orated whaleboat. They set out from Hobart on the 12 of December 1815 and returned 49 days later on the 30th of January 1815. Kelly was a very large man and on one occasion he bet that his trousers would hold five bushels of wheat. He won the bet.
