Francis Drake started to search for the shortcut to Asia called the Strait of Anian. He sailed between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean to seek it. On his way, he attacked passing Spanish Ships and took their gold and riches. He was known as a pirate after he attacked a Spanish settlement and took 80 pounds of gold. Drake claimed the California coast to England and circled the globe before going back to England.
