The Captain decided to set sail after waiting 10 days for favourable winds. The Ship could not get into the North Sea because the winds from the N.E. were so violent. The Captain the dropped the ships 3 anchors to avoid striking the pier, but the chains snapped and the stern of the ship was tossed over the pier. They had to wait for 4 weeks for new anchors to come from Amsterdam. They put out to sea on August 16, 1847 after close to 5 weeks of waiting at Hellevoetsluis.
They had 21 days of good sailing weather and reached Saag Harbor on October 23, and then to New York City on October 24, 1847 at 9:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning.
