SEA RESCUE – NSRI – STATION 12, KNYSNA. STATION 15, MOSSEL BAY
At 01h00 on Tuesday the 13th of August NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew launched their deep sea rescue craft to rendezvous at the KIANI SATU, at Buffels Bay, to stand-by on-scene while heavy duty salvage operations were carried out throughout today.
In conjunction with the ongoing safety stand-by being carried out by NSRI Knysna volunteer sea rescue duty crews each day since the ships grounding, the NSRI Mossel Bay team arrived on-scene at 05h00 today and stood-by on-scene, for deep-sea safety, while a leg of heavy duty salvage operations progressed.
This was conducted at the request of SAMSA.
NSRI Mossel Bay were released from the stand-by at approximately 21h00 and they got back to base, at NSRI Mossel Bay, at around 01h00 today, Wednesday, 14th August.
NSRI are not commenting on the ongoing salvage operations which are under the command of SAMSA but we will continue to update on the ongoing safety stand-by being carried out by our volunteers while these salvage operations progress.
