Maritime Kelly Anne Rescue Mission
Maritime Kelly Anne recently conducted a high-sea rescue of a French national, Mr. Jean Jacques Savin, aged 71 years from a distressed sea craft in the Caribbean region on 3rd of May 2019.
The vessel had received a distress message that was relayed by the USCG which was received from the French adventurer and former military paratrooper, who had previously set off for the Caribbean in a barrel on a 3 month voyage from the Canary Islands using the aid of ocean currents and dropping markers to help oceanographers from the JCOMMOPS International Marine Observatory in the study of currents in the Atlantic.
Maritime Kelly Anne reacted decisively and covered 282NM in reaching the distress craft’s location around 0020Hrs UTC on the 03rd May 2019 and successfully rescued Mr. Jacques. Vessel then proceeded to St. Eustatius and disembarked Mr. Savin, where after receiving medical care he would be repatriated to his native France.
MSI, applauds and recognizes excellent seamanship exhibited by the ships team commanded by Capt. Abhishek Pant.
