Braving the troubled high seas of the Atlantic brought about by a stormy weather, Capt. Gaspi led his crew onboard MV Sandviken, to rescue three Dutch nationals whose sailboat sank off the coast of Portugal in June 2007. Owing to this skipper’s exemplary seamanship, he had braved the perilously rough seas off the coast Portugal to take over the rescue operation where another cargo vessel had given up.
Part of his heroic act are twenty six (26) brave Filipino officers and crew members of MV Sandviken. Once again, Capt. Gaspi’s group has proven that the Filipino seafarers are the best in the world.
