very light throuought [throughout] the fore part
of the day. We made slow progress on
our tack over towards Robben island
About 3 oclock in the afternoon the
breeze began to freshen & we made
sure of getting out of the bay or at
least the dangerous parts of it before
dark which earlier in the day we
had almost dispaired of. The Bremen
did not leave that day. in the
2nd. tack we went pretty close to
[Robb scored through] Green Point, & the breeze being
light there was a chance of the
ship missing stays, however she
came around & went of nicely
on the other tack, leaving no great
distance between her stern & that
dangerous shore. We in the next
tack went pretty close to the
Whale rock but the breeze
was by this time considerable
freshened. she stayed nicely
