On March 6, the offshore survey vessel Seabed Constructor helped to rescue an injured sailor from a damaged yacht. The Constructor had just finished a successful mission to recover the voyage data recorder (VDR) from the wreck of the Stellar Daisy.

In late February, the Seabed Constructor departed the Daisy's wreck site and headed west towards the Falklands for a new task - an archaeological search-and-survey for a fleet of wrecked First World War warships. On March 5, at 1445 hours, her transit was interrupted by a call from rescue authorities in the Falkland Islands, who asked her to help the crew of the yacht Ti Paradise.
