  • Marine rescue volunteers save a cruiser
  • September 03, 2014

POINT DANGER Marine Rescue NSW prevented a catastrophe yesterday afternoon when officers escorted a leaking large cruiser from Kingscliff, to safety in Tweed Heads.

Marine Rescue officers were sent a distress signal yesterday by the captain of a large cruiser, experiencing trouble between Byron and Brunswick.

"Yesterday afternoon at about 4:10pm, a vessel requested some assistance," said radio officer John McGovern.

"The vessel was taking in water and had no lights, (but) the engine and pumps were working," he said.

"The captain was concerned it could into something more major."

"We dispatched our vessel to meet with it..."

The vessel was difficult to intercept, and was located two hours later in Kingscliff.

"We escorted it back across the bar and tied it at the pump out jetty in Tweed Heads, at 8:00pm," Mr McGovern said.
