    The voyage by William Bligh after the mutiny is probably one of the most enduring stories of navigational brilliance. Bligh is in my opinion one of the best navigators of all time along with James Cook. He was also much maligned after the event, (and continues to be so by the efforts of the film industry (who cares about truth? if it makes a good story?) but was completely exonerated by the admiralty.

    Well, after the first mutiny Bligh came out of the subsequent investigation relatively well, but we shouldn't forget that his was the only side of the tale to be heard.

    The second time around he was quietly retired.
