15 July, 1769

 

On 15 July, 1769, James Cook wrote “York Island bore SE and Huaheine WNW”.
He was referring to the islands of Mo’orea and Huahine.

Joseph Banks wrote Tupaia “often prayd to Tane for a wind and as often boasted to me of the success of his prayers, which I plainly saw he never began till he saw a breeze so near the ship that it generaly reachd her before his prayer was finishd”.
