December 2016 - Orfeas Saves Four French Boaters in the Atlantic Ocean

On December 19, 2016, our AMVER participating vessel, ORFEAS, rescued four (4) French boaters from S/V L’AMIRAL, a disabled 50-foot sailing boat in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1,082 miles east of Puerto Rico.

The international rescue operation started on December 18, 2016, when rescue authorities in Fort de France Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Center in St. Maarten notified U.S. Coast Guard in San Juan, Puerto Rico of a disabled sailboat in heavy weather requesting assistance after their rudder failed.

U.S. rescue authorities conducted an Automated Mutual Assistance Vessel Rescue (AMVER) callout to identify and notify vessels transiting in the vicinity of the distress and coordinated with Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Greece to contact our ORFEAS, which was approximately 250 nautical miles away from the disabled sailing vessel.

The Captain of ORFEAS immediately agreed to divert course in order to rescue the distressed boaters. On December 19, 2016, ORFEAS arrived on scene and managed to rescue all four French boaters despite 40 knot winds and 16-foot seas prevailing in the area. The rescued boaters were uninjured and remained onboard the ORFEAS until the vessel arrived at Ceuta, Spain on December 27, 2016.
