The second voyage to Indonesia, led by Jacob van Neck and Wijbrant van Warwijck, was reasonably successful. The fleet set sail in May 1598 and arrived in Bantam towards the end of that same year. In Bantam the fleet split: four vessels sailed on to the Moluccas. En route to Bantam five of the eight ships strayed off course and ended up in Mauritius and Madagascar. This print shows the vessels arriving in Mauritius.
