At 13h20, Monday, 27th April, NSRI Table Bay duty crew, during a routine training exercise in Table Bay, intercepted VHF Marine Radio traffic about a yacht dismasted in the Port of Table Bay entrance.
The Sea Rescue craft ROTARY ENDEAVOUR proceeded to investigate and found the yacht SPIRIT OF MARETEK had dismasted after a stay had apparently come loose and a private boat was assisting the yacht.
NSRI Table Bay crew assisted to gather the yachts mast and rigging and the top of the mast was lain over the bow of ROTARY ENDEAVOUR while the private boat took the yacht under tow and she was safely towed the Royal Cape Yacht Club with the sea rescue craft following where once moored and the mast and rigging safely gathered no further assistance was required.
