He was sent to look for Hy-Brazil, an island said to lie somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean according to Celtic legends in 1480. Some people even think Newfoundland may have been found on one of these voyages. Cape Bonavista is recongnized by both the Canadian and United Kingdom governments as being Cabot's offical landing. His men may have been the first Europeants to set foot on the American Mainland -Nova Scotia or Maine- since the Vikings.
As for his wanting to explore, he head heard stories of Christopher Columbus and thought he could get fame for doing soo.. look at this link it has everything about him.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Cabot
