I January 1833

Tierra del Fuego
For this & the following day we had a moderate wind from the old quarter SW; we all thought that after so much bad weather we should at least have a few fine days; the wind lulled & we hailed with joy a light air from the East; but in a couple of hours it veered to the North & then blew a strong gale from the SW.


Charles Darwin's Beagle Diary.

New years day in a storm off Cape Horn. Oh dear. A happy 2008 from all at the Beagle Project.
