Catch results of British and Scottish Greenland whalers very worse according tot he Dutch newspaper Middelburgsche courant dated 29 July 1766

An item reported that some of the the Greenland whalers returned in the British and Scottish harboyrs caught just one whale, others just 0,5 whale or even nothing. The continous east winds prevented the entering of the drifting ice further. The prices of baleen used for instant pettycoats would certainly rise.
