15th January 1771
[Batavia to Capetown]
Had variable light airs of wind, with which we could not get under sail until the morning, when we weighed with a light breeze at North-East, which was soon succeeded by a calm.
Joseph Banks Journal
Weighd again and stood out to sea with a breeze so gentle that at night we were still in sight of Land.
