Another slow steady day with a 24hour run of 142nm. We had a French boat pass very close by, we were give way boat so went behind it, Steve tried to call them on VHF to say hello but like the other couple boats we have tried to contact we heard nothing back, it makes us wonder if they all have their VHFs turned off or right down, if our both our main and hand held VHFs aren’t working or just they can’t be bothered to answer? With the amount of pathetic and childish VHF transmissions there are on ch16 my guess is they are turned off!
