It is 21.00 UT, we have entered the search area, made contact with a us coast guard airplane who was overhead, he confirmed to keep a good look out.
At dusk we will reduce sail, about 22.00 ut and go slow in the night north west, at first light we will head north east acrose the search area.
After this there will be a limit to what we can do as still 7 or 8 days to Azores and as Gertha has shed part of her propelar we have no option to engine at speed if necesary to clear an Aores high if it builds.
