Voyage of the Surprise from HMS Surprise complete

on April 3, 2007, 12:00 am

The ultimately unsatisified errand to the East Indies and Jack's first voyage as captain of the HMS Surprise is now mapped. This voyage was a difficult one with a great deal of agonizing over the course of the ship from Rio round the cape, the path around Madagascar and the position of Venus and it's signficance for Testudo Aubreii (amongst others). As always, if you have any suggestions on these or any other points, please contact me.
