Comment:
1765-01-09T00:00: SE(...)HALLARON 58 BRAZAS Y DESPUÉS ENTREGANDO LA GUARDIA AL 2º PILOTO CON ORDEN DE SONDAR DE 2 EN 2 HORAS, SE FUE A DORMIR: ESTE SIN HABER VERIFICADO LA ORDEN, DADAS LAS 12, DEJANDO LA GUARDIA AL CONTRAMAESTRE Y AL PILOTÍN HIZO LO MISMO. EL CAPITÁN EN LUGAR DE LEVANTARSE A LA GUARDIA DE LAS 12, NO SE RECORDÓ HASTA LA 1 1/2 QUE LE LLAMÓ EL PILOTÍN Y (LE DIJERON QUE EL 2º PILOTO NO HABÍA SONDADO. EN LUGAR DE SONDAR INMEDIATAMENTE Y CREYENDO VER SOMBRA DE TIERRA, MANDO ARRIBAR. POCO DESPUÉS ESTABA VARADO EL BARCO. TANTO EL CAPITÁN COMO EL SEGUNDO PILOTO ESTABAN CONFUSOS Y NO SABÍAN QUÉ TIERRA ERA LA QUE SE VEÍA, POR LA MUCHA CERRAZÓN. SE MANDÓ ECHAR EL ANCLA AL AGUA Y OTRAS DILIGENCIAS PARA SACAR EL NAVIO, LO QUE SE LOGRÓ. EN ESTE INTERMEDIO DE CUANDO EN CUANDO LA MAREJADA TOCABA EL NAVÍO Y A NOSOTROS NOS ARRANCABA EL CORAZÓN DE DOLOR. (EL NAVÍO HACÍA MUCHO AGUA Y NO PODÍAN ACHICARLA, ASÍ QUE FUE EL BUZO A RECONOCERLO. ESTABA CASI DESCLAVADA LA TABLA PRINCIPAL DE LA APARADURA DE LA QUILLA. ERA IMPOSIBLE SEGUIR EL DESTINO Y EL NAVÍO SE PERDIÓ TOTALMENTE. SACARON VÍVERES, PÓLVORA Y ARMAS Y TODO LO QUE PUDIERON Y SE FUERON A LA PLAYA, CON MUCHAS DIFICULTADES POR LO BRAVO DEL MAR. DURANTE MUCHOS DÍAS ESTUVIERON CONSTRUYENDO UNA EMBARCACIÓN Y TRATANDO CON LOS INDIOS LOCALES)

It is not clear from many logbook entries whether the wind direction has been corrected for the magnetic variation (or declination). To avoid any misunderstanding, all winds from reports that included a valid position in the period 1750-1854 were corrected. All other wind directions are given without being corrected.
