1782/10/11In the morning saw the entrance of the Gut of Gibraltar; the same evening passed through; the Panther and Buffalo had orders to lead the transports into the bay, but by mismanagement on the part of the transports they all drove past the Rock except four sail. 
1782/10/13Sunday. The enemy's fleet came out of the bay and stood over towards their own shore. In the evening we passed them very close and stood to the southward. The Buffalo was ordered to proceed to the Zaffarine Islands with the transports that were now with us, about twenty sail, and return to Gibraltar the first easterly wind; she parted from us in the night, but half the convoy remained with the fleet; the wind came to the southward and eastward, and we ran down to Tetuan Bay with intention to anchor there to shift the troops and send a supply of powder to the garrison from the ships. We stood close in and found that there could not be anchorage for so large a number of ships
