The Reiger, Dromedaris and Goede Hoop arrive at Table Bay

The weather continued favourable, and the vessels seldom parted company. On the 20th of January 1652 they were off the Cape Verde islands, and the commander summoned the council again. The skippers met, and decided that as there was no sickness on board any of the vessels they would continue the voyage without calling. From this time until the 29th of March nothing of any note occured. Then, for the third time during the passage, the council assembled on board the Dromedaris. SEE MORE...
