Refugees Eems Sky

Refugees Eems Sky

On Sunday 26th of August around 16.30 lt, while sailing West of Gibraltar Strait, the crew of the mv Eems Sky discovered a rubber boat with 52 refugees on board. Refugees were waving with wooden paddles and holding children into the air.

The Eems Sky informed the Coast Guard and set course to the refugees and took the rubber boat alongside. With professional skills, the crew managed to get the refugees on board the vessel. Once on board the crew gave the refugees shelter on deck and the children on the bridge. Food, water and milk were supplied to all of them, while waiting for the Coast Guard.

After a while, a boat from the Spanish Coastguard came alongside and all refugees disembarked the Eems Sky. All refugees and their rubber boat took off with the Spanish Coastguard heading to Spain.

We like to thank and congratulate the crew of the mv Eems Sky for their very good job!
