Hey dummies – it’s a sailboat, not a powerboat…

On January 10, the crew of the geared bulker Sunda rescued a sailboat adrift in the mid-Atlantic. Captain Ivan Versic, along with his officers and crew, found and saved four people who were stranded aboard the boat due to an engine failure, according to vessel operator Seastar.

After learning of the sailboat’s situation, the Sunda diverted to meet up and effect a rescue. “We made contact through VHF radio and found out that everything was fine with the crew, only they were tired. We agreed to delay the rescue for the next morning due to inclement weather. Shortly thereafter, we made the first visual contact with the boat, and we stayed nearby all night in case of an emergency,” Capt. Versic told media. Read on.
