My text should have read the NIA as in my previous messages and the answer to you question as to when the S/V 'Sassafras' due, I don't know save that if the NIA say it is overdue. . . .

Best if you telephone the French Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre if you need to find out any further info.

I quoted the message verbatim, sorry I have no further information.

Lenseman,

Quote "My text should have read the NIA as in my previous messages"

In trying to find your previous messages with the source 'NIA' - No such term could be found.

However, was able to find where you had also given 'American Intelligence Agency" as the source

for 2 other topics :- S/V Alethea and Rival 38.

Please advise, what is this source 'the NIA' ? Do the letters represent 'National Intelligence Agency' ? Then which country?, not the USA --- South Africa and Thailand both have National Intelligence Agencies and probably others.
