On Monday 1st August, at 8.40 AM, the NATO Undersea Research Centre (NURC) oceanographic vessel Alliance came to the rescue of an 18 metre pleasure craft in Italian international waters, near the port of Savona in the Ligurian Sea. The bridge watchkeepers noticed a motor yacht on fire at about 5 miles distance. The NURC crew promptly raised the alarm with the Italian Coastguard and launched a Delta Fast Rescue Boat. Six people were saved uninjured, but visibly shocked: an Italian family of five and an Ecuadorian woman.
