18 January, 1771

 

On 18 January, 1771, James Cook wrote “Light airs and calms with some showers of rain”.

 

Joseph Banks wrote “Calms and light breezes still detaind us till eve when a pleasant breeze sprung up and gave us hopes of soon gaining the trade wind, which we impatiently longd for, especialy myself who had my fever every day; nor was I the only sick man, many began to complain of purgings. Some tropick birds and Gannets (Pelecanus risc) were seen”.
