Yesterday the command bridge of the WORLD VOYAGER around 7:00am received an emergency call from a sailing yacht that was in distress about 100 nautical miles to the north. Captain Vincent van Zijderveld rerouted the expedition ship to provide assistance. At around 15:30pm, the WORLD VOYAGER reached the wrecked ship and started the evacuation of the yacht using one of the Zodiacs on board. The recovered castaways were then given medical care in the onboard hospital.
