Mayflower sets sail for the New World

The Mayflower weighed anchor, “the winds coming east north east, a fine small gale” (Mourt’s Relation); laid course WSW “for northern coasts of Virginia.”  Bradford wrote: “Now all being compact together in one ship, they put to sea again with a prosperous wind, which continued diverse days together, which was some Encouragement unto them, yet according to the usual manner many were afflicted with seasickness.”  Most of the Pilgrims had now already been living onboard the ships for nearly a month and a half.
