Again under Bond's command, she sailed from Torbay, England, on 30 May 1792, with 299 male and 49 female convicts. She reached the Cape on 9 August. One male convict escaped at the Cape, but one convict escapee from the Pitt, the convicted forger and future Australian artist Thomas Watling, was transported on board after the Dutch had recaptured him. Royal Admiral arrived in Port Jackson, New South Wales on 7 October 1792. Ten male and two female convicts had died during the voyage; four children were born.

LOSS OF THE SOPHY AND MARY HAWKESBURY BOAT, BELONGING TO T. DARGON

The Sophy and Mary left Hawkesbury in company with the William on Wednesday the 6th Instant, and on Wednesday the 14th got into Cabbage-Tree, where she lay all night, and put out the next morning. At about midway between the North Head and the Long Reef, and at about two in the afternoon, she was overtaken by a sudden squall from the Southward when at a considerable distance from the shore, and her bowsprit carried away close ; shortly after which a sea struck her forward, which started some of her butts. This accident rendered the people on board, three in number, almost hopeless of weathering the gale, which still increased upon them. Being an open boat she shipped a great quantity of water, which in addition to what she now made, kept two of the hands constantly baling, to keep her afloat ; as had she gone down they must have taken to a small boat belonging to J. Sparrow, towing astern; the after sail was shortened, in order to lie in under the fore-sail, but this intention was defeated by the increased violence of the storm.

Finding that the vessel drifted towards the shore, two of the people continued baling, whilst the third attended to the security of the small boat. At length, providentially driven aground, they managed to get out part of her freight, which consisted of Maize, and speedily after the Sophy and Mary went to pieces. Two of the people came in the day following, leaving the third in charge of the grain they had saved, but a vestige of the boat was scarcely remaining.

To adeventure the property of individuals in an OPEN boat at such a season of the year, may be considered an act of IMPRUDENCE, but when the LIVES of our fellow creatures are depending, must certainly admit a somewhat harsher epithet.
