Contexto:

Partito da Saint Petersburg, dopo un lungo viaggio attraverso la Siberia, Bering raggiunse il porto di Okhotsk e nell'estate del 1728 partì a bordo della nave Saint Gabriel, che era stata costruita sul posto. Navigò lungo costa orientale della Kamchatka e, portandosi al largo del Golfo dell'Anadyr, scoprì l'isola di Saint Lawrence.

Explanation:
You have "sailed" in the previous part of the sentence, so I would use a verb like "direct". Good luck - this seems like a looong book!

agree  Rosanna Palermo: I would drop the "directed". It's redundant.

It may be useful to have a look at a map of the region. See this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_of_Anadyr . It is worth noting that Saint Lawrence Island is outside the Gulf of Anadyr.
