Both Slats and famous french sailor van den Heede were busted for using fake call signs while sailing near Canary Islands nearby. Both had presented fake callsigns to secure their green card. Slats ceased to use ham frequencies while van den Heede used to the end. The Race Officer see fake callsigns only as a problem between an entrant and his local authority! Van den Heede is his personal friend. Slats lost personalized weather forecast and den van Heede sailed away, Slats is expected to arrive finish line in France in 2 days as 2nd.
