When you receive a Mayday by satellite, you always wonder if you are the closest. We plotted ourselves as 160 miles from the scene but going generally that direction. We informed Falmouth Coast Guard of our position and what sort of vessel we were. FCG asked us to divert, which we happily did. We did expect to be released from this within a few hours when a better asset checked in and made itself available. But alas, nothing came up, so we carried on.
