Map of the Le Maire Strait.
Caerte van de Straeten ende Passage by Iacob le Maire ghevonden ende beseijlt in't Zuydoosten van de Magallansche Straet.
The Le Maire Strait was discovered during the expedition by Willem Schouten and Jacob Le Maire. The expedition was equipped in 1615 by Le Maire's father for the Australische Compagnie. This company attempted to circumvent the VOC's patent by finding an alternative route to Indonesia. Schouten and Le Maire succeeded in their quest by sailing around Vuurland instead of the Magellan strait. But to no avail: once they reached Batavia, their story was not believed and the only remaining vessel, the Eendracht, was confiscated along with its cargo.
