At 05h00 on Saturday the 6th of December NSRI Wilderness duty crew were activated following eye-witness reports of a boat run aground at Kaaimans River Mouth between Wilderness and Victoria Bay.
Hennie Niehaus, NSRI Wilderness station commander, said: 'NSRI Wilderness launched the sea rescue craft SPIRIT OF ROTARY 100 and the NSRI 4x4 rescue vehicle, the SA Police Services and WC Government Health EMS responded.
'On arrival on-scene we found the 6 meter ski-boat FISH EAGLE II washed up on rocks on the Eastern side of the Kaaimans River Mouth and 4 men, skipper owner S. Mostert, 55, his son Cameron, 29, Edward Le Roux, 43, all from George, and Hennie Theron, 56, from Namibia, safely ashore.
'It appears that while launching through the river mouth in the spring high tide to go fishing early this morning they had been capsized by a wave and all wearing life-jackets they had managed to get safely ashore and their boat washed ashore.
'All had minor scrapes and bruises they were checked out medically by paramedics but did not require to go to hospital.
'The owner will attempt to salvage his boat at the next high tide.'
