I would have marked them on GPS and called them in without slowing down....
That is not a good idea. Mariners must give aid, by law. Ana's friend was not in immediate and imminent peril--Ana and Zieg had another bottle of O² and first responders were on their way. Drifting divers on the ocean's surface with no immediate surface support is no joke. I have been involved with real man-overboard situations. Finding people on a flat calm ocean is not that easy; it becomes quite difficult when seas are running. People make for a very small target on a vast ocean.
Ana and Zieg; Thank your taking your responsibilities as mariners seriously. By your account, you did an excellent job! Three people owe you much gratitude.
