At 14h37 on Wednesday the 24th of June, NSRI Jeffreys Bay duty crew were activated following reports from local lifeguards reporting that they suspected 3 people to be in difficulty on SUP’s (Stand Up Paddle Boards) off Jeffreys Bay and although appearing to not be in any immediate danger, the lifeguards were closely monitoring their progress.NSRI Jeffreys Bay dispatched rescue crew to investigate and on arrival on the scene found two men and a woman about 800 meters off-shore. It appeared that they were having some difficulty getting back against a 10-12 knot off-shore Westerly wind.NSRI and lifeguards monitored their progress but after they still appeared unable to get back to shore, as a precautionary measure, a lifeguard launched a rescue paddle board to go out to them and NSRI Jeffreys Bay launched the sea rescue craft DISCOVERY rescue runner.On arrival on the scene, 2 men and a woman (a Jeffreys Bay 26 year old man and a 30 year old man and a 26 year old female, both from New Zealand on holiday in Jeffreys Bay) confirmed that while not in any immediate danger they were struggling a bit to get back to shore against the stiff off-shore breeze.NSRI took the 30 year old New Zealand man under tow and and with the lifeguard paddling with the 26 year old man and the 26 year old woman all together the waves were negotiated to get back to shore safely and once ashore no further assistance was required.Jeffreys Bay NSRI Discovery Rescue Runner 12 Jeffreys Bay NSRI Discovery Rescue Runner 12 TO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONESMS 32287 with your name and a message of support for our Sea Rescue crew
