The Magellan Spirit recently rescued two British mariners adrift on a 39-foot sailing vessel 580 miles off the coast of Bermuda.
The sailing vessel had damaged its rudder and was drifting into very bad weather when the Magellan received the rescue alert from the US Coast Guard. Once on the scene, the Magellan worked together with Ethane Sapphire, acting as a windbreak for the team onboard the Magellan fast rescue boat to expertly recover and safely transfer the two British mariners on board.
We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to the team onboard the Magellan Spirit for going above and beyond the call of duty to help those at sea. We are proud to be working alongside colleagues who embody Teekay Spirit every day.
