In 1901 the RRS Discovery sailed from Cowes and sighted the Antarctic coastline in 1902. Preparing for winter, the RRS Discovery was docked at McMurdo Sound and remained there, locked in ice for the following two years. However, the Expedition was able to determine that Antarctica was indeed a continent. Edward Wilson, Shackleton, and Scott reached 82 16'S later that Antarctic summer. RRS Discovery finally broke free from the ice in February 1904 and after stops in Balleny Islands, Macquerie Island, New Zealand and the Falklands, arrived at Portsmouth on September 1904.
