Advice when migrants spotted

ADVERTISEMENT

The Professional Yachting Association has distributed a memo to advise yacht captains how to handle interactions with migrants in the Med this summer.

The 20-page Aide Memoire shows where the highest volume of migrant boats have been seen, including just east of Gibraltar, along the southern coasts of Sicily and Italy, and the eastern and southern coasts of Greece.

It suggests actions to take when a migrant boat is encountered at sea in various situations including when to take them aboard, onboard management of survivors, and what to do once they have disembarked.

It includes checklists for things like pre-season planning, passage planning, necessary equipment and training as well as numerous forms to help record the incident and activities of the captain and crew.

PYA members Capt. Rod Hatch and Capt. Adrian Croft worked with Allmode Yachtsafe, a yacht risk management organization, to produce the document. It is posted online through Onboard Online at
