UPDATE: Amver ship rescues French sailor near Cuba

Earlier this week a French sailor was rescued by the Amver participant Fuji Bay after the sailor's boat sank near Cuba. We received an update from Captain Smolenkov, master of the Fuji Bay, and he described the rescue as-

"Owing to the coordinated actions of crew after reception of VHF distress signal, without any hesitates, rescue operation was short, with lightning speed, and successful!" 

We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Captain Smolenkov. Bravo Zulu to you and the entire crew of the Fuji Bay!

Here are some photos of the rescue.

Congratulations to the crew of the Fuji Bay, a Seatrade managed ship, for a helping ensure no call for help goes unanswered!
