Navy assists yacht distressed by technical fault

The Navy assisted in providing food and drinking water to a couple who was distressed on a foreign yacht anchored in the seas off Galle due to a technical fault of the vessel while sailing across the Southern seas, on Tuesday.

Under the curfew situation declared over Sri Lanka to control coronavirus, responding to a request made by the foreign couple, SL Navy provided them necessary food and drinking water. Considering a message given to the Navy by this couple who was experiencing a hard time since the inability to get the essential food and drinking water due to the curfew, under the directives of Commander of the Navy Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva and on guidance of Commander Southern Naval Area Rear Admiral Kassapa Paul, SL Navy provided required food items and drinking water to this foreign yacht by a Inshore Patrol Craft following all safety precautions.

The couple who was spending a crucial time without food and water, paid their gratitude to the SL Navy for timely involvement to assist them in their hour of need.
