So, what is the consensus ?

Should the Coast Guard do a goodwill PR rescue before it turns into a suvival rescue or
should they be taken to port and let them hole up there for 6 months ?

I can imagine the ice flow might have moved in pretty quickly with the right
prevailing winds but does that negate the sailors responsibility to plan well
and make sure all avenues are covered ?

In Australia's case, we don't have a Coast Guard, it is the Navy that
does all the rescues.
