The Winners' Stories

Hakon Skutberg Siddarth Sharma and Theresa Crossley018The winner of the IMRF Award 2018 for Outstanding Individual Contribution to a Maritime SAR Operation is Captain Siddarth Sharma, a ship's master from Mumbai, India.

Captain Siddarth Sharma was nominated for his actions in saving two French fishermen, who had been drifting for three days on a sinking fishing boat.

He was the master of ITB ASTAL-LORIDA, employed by Trinitas Ship Management and based in India, and he says that he simply did what every seafarer should do – to save anyone in distress at sea.

The rescue took place on 11 January 2018 about midday. Captain Siddarth Sharma was on the bridge and spotted the boat about 2.5 kilometres away. He immediately decided to take action - calling on all of the crew to help.
