ISSUE NO. 16 | NOVEMBER 2012 | PAGE 2 CORPORATE INFORMATION OF THE F. LAEISZ GROUP MV PONTREMOLI INVOLVED IN RESCUE OPERATION On the 16th of October our MV PONTREMOLI, chartername ANL BENALLA, received an AMSA request to assist an S + R-operation of a lonely sailor. After eight hours of full steaming the yacht, previously located by a civil airplane, was reached and shelter given against swell and wind. At 04:00 hours of the 17th the coastguard arrived but without the MV PONTREMOLI being there, they would have not been able to locate the yacht. Many thanks to Captain Radloff and his crew.
