Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY DARSHANA SANJEEWA

Sri Lanka Navy’s Ad­vanced Offshore Pa­trol Ves­sel SLNS Sayu­rala res­cued a French yacht named “San­de­tie” which had distressed in deep seas 72 nau­ti­cal miles off Galle Light House.

The Navy said the yacht was in dis­tress due to an en­gine fail­ure.

Af­ter re­ceiv­ing dis­tress call, Sri Lanka Navy promptly dis­patched SLNS Sayu­rala for the res­cue of the yacht in dis­tress on Satur­day.

The res­cued ship with four crew was towed to the Galle har­bour and sub­se­quently handed over to a pri­vate ship­ping com­pany for on­ward ac­tion.
