Bligh did sail with Cooke early on so he wasn't a slouch. His memory was most likely better and more focused than my own. Funny what mental illness and cancer does to a person's head.

Many sailing directions and nautical tomes from the era had a list of important ports and their coordinates. Bligh's purported memory may have been nothing more than a table lookup
