As it nears the position where the wooden boat was spotted, Aquarius sends an email to the LYJRCC to inform of her availability to help:
“We are keeping a sharp lookout and will report to you any information which may help in the search.
My ship is equipped with 3 fast rescue craft, a rescue team, a medical team, and enough aids equipment and resources to perform mass rescue operations and to take care of the survivors. I have the capacity to keep the survivors onboard and to transfer them to a place of safety.
Please acknowledge receipt of this message, confirm to me the occurrence of an alert phase, and update me about the situation.”
