Variable Light Airs and calm all this 24 hours. At Noon found the current to set SE1/4S one Mile an hour, and yet by Observation at Noon I find the Ship 12 Miles to the Northward of account, a circumstance that hath not happen'd for many days and which I believe to be owing to the heavy squalls we had yesterday from the SE, which obliged us to put frequently before the Wind.
