According to our vessel identification systems, currently there are not merchant vessels in the area within a radius of approximately 500 nautical miles. The only vessel navigating in the vicinities is MV "Nanjing Express", which is currently navigating towards your yacht, since weather conditions show a frontal system with the following characteristics:
Synoptic situation: Frontal system.
Forecast: overcast/cloudy, visibility 10/8 km, occasional showers, wind w/nw 12/20 knots, gusts of 30 knots, swell 1.5/2.5 mt.
Synoptic situation: pre-frontal / frontal.

Once MV “NANJING EXPRESS” arrives in your position, please assess and report your decision of continuing navigating on board your yacht or embarking on board MV, bearing in mind what was said in the previous paragraphs.
