Double Happiness assisted yacht crew in distress
The "Double Happiness" responded to the mayday call of the sinking yacht "Perle" the crew of which had activated a distress beacon 140 miles west of the Republic of Palau. The crew was rescued from a life raft on Sep 6, 2011. Coast Guard Sector Guam Command Center watchstanders received an EPIRB notification at approximately 1:15 a.m. Watchstanders then issued a "Safety Net" broadcast asking for any Automated Mutual Assistance Vessel Rescue vessels in the area to assist. The crew of the "Double Happiness" immediately responded to the broadcast. The "Double Happiness" made communication with the crew of the 45-foot motor yacht "Perle". The crew of the yacht reported the vessel was quickly taking on water. The crew of the "Perle" was located by the "Ao Hong Ma" at 6:45 a.m. They were transferred from their life raft aboard the cargo ship. All survivors were reported to be in good health and will remain on board until the cargo ship arrives in Taiwan.Upload News
