ONE containership rescues sailor from stricken yacht in the Atlantic

A containership operated by Ocean Network Express (ONE) successfully rescued a distressed sailor on board a yacht within hours of receiving a distress call.

The NYK Nebula rescued a Canadian-French sailor on board a yacht in the North Atlantic Ocean that had suffered a torn sail.

The containership reached the yacht within two and half hours of receiving a distress call requesting urgent assistance and successfully rescued the sailor on board the vessel.

ONE said that on completion of the rescue the NYK Nebula continued on her voyage to Southampton, and no delay in its schedule resulted from the rescue.
