NSRI Durban launched the sea rescue craft MEGAN II at 12h56 on Saturday the 11th of July, following an activation by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) reporting a Hobie-Cat with 2 people onboard capsized in the Port of Durban near the container dock.
On arrival on-scene NSRI Durban found the Hobie-Cat had already been righted and they were sailing on. No assistance was required.
At 13h30 on Saturday the 11th of July, NSRI Agulhas launched the sea rescue craft VODACOM RESCUER VII following reports of 4 men overdue from fishing on a rubber-duck.
'Police assisted to trace a phone number from the men’s vehicle and trailer registration plates and family of the men were contacted from the information. Once contacted the men confirmed that they had run out of fuel but had managed to beach safely', said Reinard Geldenhuys, NSRI Agulhas station commander.
Once located all 4 men, from Bredasdorp, were found to be safe. Fuel was provided to them by NSRI Agulhas and they arrived back in Struisbaai harbour without incident.
