At 08h05 on Friday the 30th of May NSRI Mykonos volunteers were activated following reports of an unmanned kayak found drifting on Langebaan Lagoon.
Fishermen on a fishing boat had come across the unmanned kayak and raised the alarm.
NSRI Mykonos volunteer sea rescue duty crew launched the sea rescue craft GEMINI RESCUER II and during a search the unmanned kayak was found and on investigation a man on a holiday house boat at Kraal Baai reported that his brother, Gerhard Kemp, 37, of Citrusdal, had gone paddling in the early hours of the morning in a dense fog and had not returned.
The fishermen on the fishing boat then reported seeing a man waving and shouting for help on rocks on the shore on the South side of Kraal Baai.
On investigation NSRI Mykonos found Gerhard Kemp on the rocks suffering lacerations and a suspected fractured leg reporting that he had fallen out of the kayak while paddling and he had managed to swim ashore.
His brother was informed that he was found safe and we took Mr Kemp to the Langebaan Yacht Club where Atlantic Medical Response took over treatment of Mr Kemp and he has been transported to hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
