On May 3, 2018, our M/V Desert Spring received a distress call from the US Coast Guard, requesting assistance for the rescue of three crew members of sailing yacht “Othilia” that was in distress in Atlantic Ocean, about 460 n.m. NE of Puerto Rico.

Immediately, Captain Roderick G. Andam and his crew, after diverting the vessel’s course, approached the sailing yacht “Othilia” and were able to bring aboard all three individuals and transfer them safely, after two days off port limits to San Juan, P;R., into the custody of the USGC who, in turn, thanked them for their involvement and assistance.
