Summary Stand by to assist a man overboard rescue


Sandra Azul

Whilst on passage from Singapore to Port Klang, the Sandra Azul (now renamed MSC Catania) was contacted by VTS Klang sector 5 and asked to assist in the search for a man over board.

Within 10 minutes the Sandra Azul was slowing down 2 miles from the MOB position with all hands mustered and additional lookouts all around.

18 minutes later VTS Klang reported that the Maersk Qatar had completed the successful rescue of the MOB casualty. The Sandra Azul was then released to continue on passage.

Thank you and well done to Capt Panchici and all on board the Sandra Azul.
