Channel 16 blocked

Boat on exercise : Atlantic 85

Date : 13 November

Weather : Fine and light wind

Whilst out on exercise the lifeboat was diverted to a yacht in the Thorney Channel with it’s VHF constantly transmitting and so blocking Channel 16. The yacht was identified and the skipper alerted to the problem. He immediately found that the send microphone button was stuck and was able to free it. The Atlantic 85 then resumed its exercise.
