Rescue at Sea



Here is an interesting story of the rescue at sea of Leo Sherman. It occurred off the coast of Madagascar last month after his catamaran, Queenqueg II, capsized. It was posted on the AMVER (Automated Mutual Assistance Vessel Rescue System) blog.

Pictured is Mr. Leo Sherman with Captain Kim of the M/V Auto Banner that rescued him. (photo courtesy of Leo Sherman).

Mr Sherman shares some emergency preparation tips that would have helped his situation.
