From 25-03 till 05-04 at the Nicobar Islands; from 01-05 the fleet was before Johore where it started operations against the Portuguese. The ERASMUS, the PROVINCI√čN and probably the EENDRACHT departed not before 30-05 from the Maas. The first 2 ships joined Matelieff on 14-07-1607 off Malacca, the EENDRACHT was sent for Mauritius to collect ebony. In August 1610 this ship was destroyed by fire on the coast of Coromandel.
