SEA Watch
Welcome to the first SEA Watch of 2016 with more updates and commentary on what’s happening in the world of shipping and marine insurance. In this edition we have an article which looks at the responsibility of a ship’s Master when they receive a distress call or find people in distress on the sea. What would the Master take into account before effecting a rescue and what are his obligations thereafter? On arriving at his port of destination, just when help should be at hand, he may encounter more difficulties than he had expected before being able to get a decision from the shore Authorities to allow his rescued persons ashore.
