All the 19 passengers arose early, none of them seemingly the worse for their first night at sea. Even those prone to seasickness found nothing in the gentle motion of the dirigible to upset them. Considerate always, Dr. Eckener chose a course which would spare the Graf the rocking effect of disorderly winds, and found a cloudless lane of travel to enable the passengers to be awakened from their sleep by a flood of golden sunlight in their staterooms. The Graf sent out the following message to Friedriehshafen, her home port: "At 4 p. m. (Greenwich mean time), position 34 degrees north latitude, 12 degrees west longitude. Speed not great. Detouring westward in order to escape low pressure zone north of Canaries and to reach trade wind zone.” The Zeppelin's commander later returned to his course and radioed he was proceeding toward the Canaries. Weather conditions were poor for radio communication, with mist and head winds shifting to the east and later swinging west.
