Quiz Question

25 March

A question of ‘what would you do?’ this week.

Imagine you were cruising along a rocky coast in a South Westerly wind and were taking a fix on a light 2 miles away that bears 320 magnetic when you notice a dinghy dis-masted approximately 1 mile away between you and the light.
You are unable to go to its aid as the water is too shallow for your boat. They presumably have no VHF or other means of communication as they are waving frantically in your direction.
If you decide to send a VHF call, what sort of call would you make and what details would you include in your message? What would you do after making the call?
