Emergeny tug rescued 54 migrants

Mon Jul 22 11:24:47 CEST 2024 Timsen

On the night of July 21, the semaphore of Boulogne-sur-Mer signalled the departure of a migrant boat to the CROSS Gris-Nez. The CROSS Gris-Nez deployed the 'Abeille Normandie' and the patrol boat 'Kermorvan' to relocate the boat. Once on scene, its poor buoyancy was noted. The 'Abeille Normandie' and the 'Kermorvan' each launched two rescue boats to help the people in distress. Given the urgency of the boat breaking up and several migrants falling into the water, the four rescue boats provided assistance and allowed people in difficulty to be collected on board. All 54 people were rescued and taken aboard the 'Abeille Normandie', which then dropped off the people at the dock at the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer. At the same time, the Dunkirk semaphore (59) signals another boat departure off the coast of Malo-les-Bains (59). The CROSS engages the rescue ship Ridens chartered by the State. Once in the area, the Ridens crew picked up 17 people on board who requested assistance. The Ridens resumes its surveillance mission and indicates that other people still on board the boat are not requesting assistance. Given the risks of falling overboard or injury incurred by people in the event of forced intervention, the choice is made to let the other people present on this boat continue their journey. The shipwrecked people recovered by the Ridens were then deposited at the port of Dunkirk. Once at the dock, all the shipwrecked people are taken care of by the land rescue services and the border police.

68 migrants rescued in two missions

Sun Jul 21 16:33:01 CEST 2024 Timsen

On July 20, several migrant boats in difficulty were reported to the CROSS Gris-Nez. During the night, the semaphore of Boulogne-sur-Mer signalled the departure of a boat from the port with many people on board. The CROSS Gris-Nez deploed the 'Abeille-Normandie' to check the situation in the area. On scene, the crew launched their light intervention equipment which rescued two people on board who requested assistance. The 'Abeille-Normandie' resumed its surveillance mission and indicated that other people still on board the boat were not requesting assistance. The two rescued were dropped off at the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer and taken care of by the land emergency services and the border police. In the middle of the night, another boat departure was reported off the coast of Dunkirk. The CROSS Gris-nez initially deployed the 'Oyapock' to relocate the boat. The CROSS then engaged the rescue ship 'Ridens' to take over from the 'Oyapock' early in the morning. Once in the area, the 'Ridens' picked up 66 people requesting assistance on board. Several people still on board the boat refused the assistance offered by French means.

Assistance to several migrant boats

Wed Jul 10 11:56:47 CEST 2024 Timsen

On July 9, 2024, several migrant boats in difficulty were reported to the CROSS Gris Nez. In the middle of the night, a ferry indicated that a migrant boat is en route in the channel of the port of Calais (62) with many people on board. The CROSS Gris-Nez deployed the “Pluvier” to check the situation in the area. Once there, the patrol boat noticed that the boat was stationary and the passengers requested assistance. The crew then picked up the 63 people on board and dropped them off at the dock at the port of Calais. At the same time, a boat departure was reported in the Le Touquet sector by the internal security forces. The CROSS Gris-nez deployed the rescue vessel “Minck” to locate the boat. Once in the area, the crew noticed that three people were in the water, but that the migrant boat continued on its way. The crew rescued the shipwrecked people, and the CROSS simultaneously mobilized the 'Abeille Normandie' for support. Once the three castaways were safe on board the 'Minck', the rescue ship resumed its surveillance mission and indicated that the 41 other people still on board the boat also requested assistance. The 44 people were taken care of at the end of the night on board Minck before being dropped off at the port of Boulogne-sur-mer. Early on the morning, a third migrant boat was reported off the Wadde lighthouse, Calais Est sector. The CROSS engaged the 'Pluvier', which has just dropped off the previous castaways to check the situation in the area. Once there, the crew noticed that the boat was very loaded and moving slowly. At first, the migrants refused assistance. Then, mid-morning, some of the people on board agreed to be rescued by the 'Pluvier', which rescued 19 people before dropping them off in Calais at the start of the afternoon. Given the risk of falling overboard or injury to people in the event of forced intervention, the choice is made to let the other people present on this boat continue their journey.
