Crew members on board a multimillion-dollar yacht bobbing around the
South Pacific Ocean with no power are being rescued after making a
distress call two days ago.
The 37-metre Masteka 2 was on its way
from Fiji to Sydney when it lost steering and began taking on water
about 260 kilometres east of Port Macquarie on Tuesday.
Carnival Spirit, a cruise ship that responded to the Australian
Maritime Safety Authority's call for assistance, reached
the superyacht first.
It rescued two female crew members using its fast boat and continued on its cruise to The Isle of Pines in New Caledonia.
The four remaining crew members opted to stay with the yacht to keep it afloat until further help arrived.
They were dropped supplies including satellite phones and monitored the boat's pumps for two days.
