26 February, 1770


On 26 February, 1770, James Cook wrote “At I AM the wind moderating set the topsails with one reef out; but soon after day light the Gale increased to a Storm with heavy squalls attended with rain; this brought us again under our courses, and the Main topsail being split we unbent it and brought another to the yard”.

Joseph Banks wrote “Still Blew hard, in some squalls very much so. Thermometer today at noon was 48 [Farenheit] which pinchd us a little”.
