EU NAVFOR warship assists Yemeni dhowApril 26, 2011 - 11:07
On the morning of the 20th April the helicopter from the German frigate NIEDERSACHSEN discovered a Yemeni Dhow with complete engine failure. It was adrift 54 nautical miles (100km) South East of the Yemeni coast. The crew of the dhow waved their arms to attract the attention of the helicopter.
At this time NIEDERSACHSEN was 48 nautical miles (89km) south-westerly of the dhow, patrolling the IRTC – International Recommended Transit Corridor. Instantly, Niedersachsen changed course towards the vessel in order to assist her.
The engineering team of NIEDERSACHSEN went on board the Yemeni dhow and were able to repair the vessel. On completion the dhow continued on her journey having been provided with food and water.
