An important message from the team of Grain de Soleil!
I surely hope they going to fine them soon!
"Today we received a phone
call from MRCC Gris-Nez (France) at 17H00 UTC. They put us in a conference call with a sailor who just arrived in Azores
(West Indies) few weeks ago. During the night of May 19th to 20th at 0H00 UTC this sailor was changing his shift and saw a white flash light on the starboard of his sailboat. He asked for confirmation to his mate, who confirmed seeing this white flash light as well. Their position at that moment was : 36°10N 40°11W
When they arrived today at the harbour Master Office they saw the add concerning our missing sailboat Grain de Soleil and realized they might have passed by on the night they saw the white flash light.
This is when they called the MRCC Gris-Nez which immediatly put us in contact with them.
As for now the MRCC Gris-Nez sent the information to the MRCC Ponta Delgada (Portugal) and the MRCC Norfolk (USA).
