29th June 1836

South Atlantic
The Beagle crossed the Tropic of Capricorn for the sixth & last time. We were surprised & grieved by finding light northerly breezes, within limits generally occupied by a strong trade wind.

Not a lot, it seems, happening at sea at present, but very soon the Beagle stops at St. Helena and is driven by the prevailing winds/currents to Brazil.  So... much more to come as yet. (Roger R.)
