Preparing for Sea: Chief Officer’s Thoughts

Beppe-for-BlogOn April 1st  2017, MOAS launched our fourth search and rescue mission in the Central Mediterranean. Throughout this month, we’ll bring you interviews with the crew on board the Phoenix, exploring aspects of the mission preparation, how the vessel is equipped, and the challenges the crew will face at sea.

Here, Beppe Galea Mallia, Phoenix’s Chief Officer, talks us through the preparations he and the crew have been making for the new mission.

Watch out for the next installment of ‘Preparing for Sea’ and for our special launch podcast. For all the MOAS news and updates, sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of this page. You can support our rescue missions by giving whatever you can to help us save lives at sea.
