James Craig voyage 1894


“…Rounded the Cape of Good Hope on July 3 in latitude 44oS…with hard gales and heavy weather and passed a great deal of ice while making her easting. At 6 pm on July 7…passed close to an immense berg and at 5 pm on July 9, with thick foggy weather…passed three very large bergs, and the weather continuing thick…was compelled to heave to. Met a heavy gale on July 11…with hard squalls and heavy seas, and at 2.20 am sighted another large berg ahead, while after getting to the northward of it…passed three detached pieces, saw another and passed to the northwards of it…”
