The Golden Hind was an English galleon captained by Sir Francis Drake.
Francis Drake’s flagship, the Golden Hind sailed up the Tulebug River in search for a fortifiable location for a British outpost. Sir Francis Drake finally ended up setting up the Drakeborough in the shores of Calisota.

She was originally known as the Pelican, but was renamed by Drake mid-voyage in 1578, as he prepared to enter the Strait of Magellan, calling it the Golden Hind to compliment his patron, Sir Christopher Hatton, whose armorial crest was a golden 'hind' (a female deer). Hatton was one of the principal sponsors of Drake's world voyage.
