From the logbook of Sea-Eye skipper Claus-Peter Reisch
This morning we received an MRCC call via the Aquarius (SOS Méditerrannée ship): two boats sighted.
We immediately headed towards the indicated position and had the MRCC Rome confirm the request.
9:25: Sighting of the two wooden boats.
9:40: Start of the rescue operation together with the Iuventa (Jugend rettet ship). The Iuventa crew looked after one of the wooden boats, the Sea-Eye after the other.
9:55: All people on board the boats had received life vests. A total of 147 people were on the two boats; 129 men, nine women and nine children.
11:00: The Aquarius arrived in order to take the refugees on board. The Sea-Eye crew supported the transfer. Both wooden boats looked new and did not even have clamps to be moored in the harbour. Both boats were burned after the transfer.
12:15: Rescue operation finished for the Sea-Eye.
