On the way to the SAR zone

This morning, the TROTAMAR III left its home port Licata in Sicily and set course for the Tunisian escape route, off Lampedusa.

This marks the beginning of the third deployment of the CompassCollective in support of sea rescue in the Mediterranean. On board is a crew of six under skipper Matthias. Also rescue material to support up to 250 people on the run. The arrival in the „Search and Rescue Zone“ is expected for Thursday.

We finance our deployments from donations. If you can help fund the next deployment, we appreciate every Euro: https://www.betterplace.org/de/projects/121266
