Blocked Convoy Allowed (no bug)

In the game 173766 (Lowkey AMoM Dip), Germany had a fleet in the Helgoland Blight that was trying to move to the North Sea. In the North Sea, England had a fleet that was trying to convoy an army from Yorkshire to Holland. With the German fleet moving into the North Sea, I understood that as enough to interrupt the English convoy, however, the English army is now located in Holland. Is there any way to fix this? Or am I misremembering rules?

A convoying fleet must be dislodged, not merely attacked, for the convoy to fail.

The convoying fleet has to be dislodged to cancel the convoy instruction. In the case you mention Helgoland Bight had no support & it bounced. With North Sea still in place the convoy proceeds as ordered.

Many moons ago (ok so it was many, many, many); we used to play house rules that did break a convoy when attacked even when not dislodged, as our theory was that the convoying fleets wold be too engaged with the attacking fleet to be able to carry out their convoy function. Wonder if that should be a variant?
