The rescue operation has taken place following a 406 MHz Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) 645 miles south-west of San Diego, CA on November 15, 2012. The small sailing vessel was on her way from Hawaii to Catalina at the time of the EPIRB activation, just after their sails got damaged. U.S. Coast Guard rescue personnel at the Eleventh District Command Center received the alert and launched a search aircraft from Sacramento and requested superyacht Octopus to divert and aid. The Lurssen built mega luxury yacht OCTOPUS was about 50 miles from the Sequel, reaching the sailboat in 3 hours. This is the second time since her enrolment in AMVER in 2011, that the 126-metre yacht got involved in a rescue.
