Wednesday, 17 January 1565

I measured the sun at ten degrees less 1/5. And today, the maestre de campo and the rest of the captains and pilots were called to the flagship by His Lordship and asked their opinion about navigation and latitude which the pilots had marked. And they said that the ship should go northwest until it got to the altitude of 13 degrees. And so at 4 in the afternoon, the ship had run 24 leagues and the ships were going the turn northwest.
