Heavylift ship saved catamaran crew
The "HHL Elbe" en route from Porto Marghera to Kandla spotted two distress flares in the Red Sea. Diverting to intercept the incident developed into a full blown rescue when a small, white rubber dinghy was seen showing a blinking flashlight. The master brought the HHL Elbe alongside the dinghy and held his position whilst a heaving line and buoy were sent out to the dinghy, and and the two persons inside were brought abroad. The couple found turned out to be Stefan Jerkander and his wife, Svetlana Salnikova-Jerkander and fortunately after both were given first aid aboard the heavy lift ship are reportedly well. The pair were forced to take to the dinghy after their catamaran "Cattarina" sank off the Sudanese coast during a voyage from Split to Phuket.
