13 February, 1770


On 13 February, 1770, James Cook wrote “a fresh breeze sprung up at NE and we steer'd SWBW for the Southermost land we had in sight”.

Joseph Banks wrote “Calm which gave me an opportunity of going out in the boat and shooting some Albatrosses. The air today was so hazey that we could scarce see the least traces of land and yet the snow on the top of the mountain was very visible”.
