Please follow this link for the official statement from Worldwide Dive and Sail.

Naturally we are all shocked and deeply saddened by this regrettable incident. However we remain grateful that neither the guests on board nor our crew were injured and wish to thank all those who have offered support and condolences.

We are proud of our team's efforts to save our yacht and thankful also to the crew and guests of the Indo Siren who were on hand to lend assistance to the guests and crew of the Mandarin Siren.

Best wishes to all for 2012 form the Siren Fleet team
