At Sea to Java, 10 April 1893

In the morning at a quarter hour past 2 o’clock we entered the strait of Banka. Heavy clouds in the South-west let us fear wind with heavy rain. But the storm passed us by so that we could continue without interference.

At 10 o’clock in the morning, „Elisabeth“ passed by the Timbaga Rocks. The wreck of a stranded full ship which had been loaded with coal showed the perils to which sailors are exposed.

At 2 o’clock in the afternoon „Elisabeth“ was at the southern end of the Bangka strait. From there our course led us eight miles east of North Watcher and from here started navigating around the Nassau Rocks towards the Edam lighthouse.
