Playing devil's advocate (a bit):
It was early on a still morning - fog could have been a factor.
They were in a flotilla of other boats - maybe had to take avoiding action?
27 has been moved quite recently - maybe they hadn't updated their charts/plotter.
No real excuses though. Like I said, the report will be interesting......
If foggy there's no way they should have been doing 25kts especially in a flotilla
Always operate with your visibility window
