A NZAF orion aeroplane over flew us at lunchtime to check we were OK and ask our destination . Nice to see them out here . Sounded very British .
They took the wind with them and left us rolling on a slight swell with glassy sea . We have been slowly motoring all afternoon to comat the roll . The sky has become overcast fro the east but is clear ahead but nothing to suggest wind yet . At least the batteries are charged .
