  • Piet Söhngen

    Piet Söhngen

    Piet Söhngen, foreman and aspiring sea dog, has developed a strong bond with the sea. While his friends preferred to stay in their warm and cozy homes with a pot of tea, the wind and rain drew Piet outside. The forces of nature fascinated him and he learned to love a stormy sea more than a sunny beach. Under the keen eyes of Jonne, Piet became a seasoned sea rescuer, well-versed with the dangers and perils of the open waters and risking his life for others on the high seas!




  • Arndt Holgersson

    Arndt Holgersson

    Arndt Holgersson is the focus and calm of the maritime rescue team. As an engineer, he spends a lot of time below deck and ensures that the sea rescue cruiser is always operational! Even under pressure and in the most difficult of situations, he always manages to find the right words and has good advice for his crew members.

  • Jasper Strindberg

    Jasper Strindberg

    Jasper Strindberg is the youngest member of the crew. As a trained paramedic, his youthful energy led him to seek adventure on the high seas – the crew can always count on Jasper! Always high spirited and inquisitive, he’s one of the people you can tell was born to serve at sea and to save lives!

  • Unbekannt

    We hire a crew!

    We are going to introduce a new crew member every week. If you are keen in reading additional background stories of all characters have a look next week.

  • Freija Ihmels

    Freija Ihmels

    Freija Ihmels is your contact at MRCC Bremen. She is in constant radio contact with the crew of the rescue cruiser. When an emergency call goes in, she is the life-saving link between the sea rescuers and those in distress. She’s always up for a joke with her “boys”, but will switch back to professional calm at the drop of a hat when it comes to saving people‘s lives!

  • Jonne Faas

    Jonne Faas

    Old Jonne is a textbook example of a sea dog! Nobody knows the sea as well as he does. There’s no trick or danger that the Seven Seas have to offer that he doesn’t already know! You can tell from his weathered face, hidden under a long gray beard, that he’s spent countless days at sea in every kind of weather. When he realized that his days as a sea rescuer were coming to an end, he passed on all his knowledge of the sea to Piet to ensure that the seas remained safe even without him! Every sea rescuer knows the “Jonn’ian wisdoms”, and they’ve etched themselves especially deep into Piet‘s memory.
