8 March, 1771

 

On 8 March, 1771, James Cook wrote “A Steady fresh gale and settled weather. At 4 in the PM had high land in sight bearing NEBN”.

 

Joseph Banks wrote “Fair wind accompanied with clear weather. Over the land however, at least in that direction, hung clouds and appearances of rain as indeed was generaly the case. For these some days past the seamen have found the ship to be Drove hither and thither by currents in a manner totaly unacountable to them”.
