  • Marine Rescue Ulladulla rescues seven in three separate incidents
  • February 15, 2016

Volunteer crews from Marine Rescue Ulladulla have rescued seven people on board three boats stranded by engine and battery problems over the past week.

Early on Sunday, February 7, a 5m runabout with two people on board called for help with an engine breakdown 1.2 nautical miles East of Lagoon Head.

Skipper David Lindley and crew Doug Musker, Rolf Zerbes, Brian Williamson and Lisa Hardwick responded on Ulladulla 30 at 7.20am. The runabout was located quickly and towed to Ulladulla Harbour by 9.50am.

Three people were then stranded on a 5.3m vessel with two flat batteries near Crampton Island on Wednesday, February 10.

Peter White, Unit Commander Dave Hall and John Taber were deployed, managing to pass a battery booster pack to the boaters in choppy conditions. After the boat was successfully re-started, UL 30 accompanied the boaters back to Ulladulla Harbour.

An engine breakdown on a 5m runabout with two people on board less than a nautical mile East of Bannister Head yesterday morning saw Skipper Dave Hall, David Lindley, Allan Brook and Lisa Hardwick depart Ulladulla Harbour at 7.46am. UL 30 took the runabout under tow, returning just after 9am.

The unit also assisted an annual Makai Paddlers Race event, the Makai Cup, on Saturday.

UC Hall said Ulladulla 30 had acted as a safety vessel for the event, anchoring a marker buoy east of Bendalong and then following the pack as the paddlers battled, then rode a brisk north easterly wind.

“We thank the Makai Paddlers for their support during our two years of rebuilding the base. Congratulations on a successful Makai Cup 2016,” he said.
