I'd call that within UK coastal waters personally, it's well inside the Hebridies -Ireland line. It's like me being 4 miles off Start Point being in the Western Aprroaches.

I'm not saying the boat wasn't offshore, and conditions may not have been pleasant.

Anyone Going to Own Up To This?

Excuse me but why oh why are we arguing about what can only be termed Symantecs I'm relation to the bigger picture of a successful rescue of a father and his children. God knows what that guy was feeling and it certainly didn't matter where he was inside a supposed demarcation line drawn from Lewis to Donegal!!
Thank god they were safe. 👍👏

I think were all worried about how less successful these shouts may be in the future due to the ever decreasing coverage of our CG's and support stations

Fully agree, as per my first reply on this.

My point was more about the media's perceived need to sensationalise everything. Was there any need for the "North Atlantic" tag, - the headline "Children winched to safety" in itself would have drawn attention to the story. Why can't things be kept simple and factual?
