Ships NewsEdit

This year on 6 August 2014 the crew of Stena Paris entered into the news by saving an elderly Swedish couple from their dismasted yacht near the Cook Islands. The Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ) detected a beacon alert from the yacht Blue Horizon. The couple, a 69-year-old woman and 70-old-man, feared the broken mast would hole the hull. The chemical tanker was close to the accident and saved the two seafarers.
