  • December 23, 2014

The lone yachtsman whose vessel struck trouble off the Illawarra Coast This morning was successfully located by NSW Police Marine Area Command and volunteers from Marine Rescue Shoalhaven and Jervis Bay units.

 

The disabled yacht was taken in tow by Marine Rescue vessel Jervis Bay 40, but the trouble is not yet over for the yacht’s skipper.

 

The yacht is taking on water as the slow tow to safety at Huskisson continues.

 

With the tow still around five nautical miles offshore at 1:45pm, the Police Marine Area Command vessel is standing by the yacht ready to take off the skipper and Jervis Bay 40 is ready to release the tow line if the yacht is in danger of sinking.
