The crew members administered first aid and provided warm clothing, food and water to the survivor, who according to his statement had spent 42 days at sea the last 4 of which without food. Following the recovery, the Omega Lady Sarah was contacted by the U.S.. Coast Guard and instructed to divert to Nassau, Bahamas, where the recovered sailor was delivered to local authorities and received medical attention. After Nassau, the M/V Omega Lady Sarah returned to its original itinerary, towards Gibraltar.
