At 18h50 on Wednesday the 17th of February, NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from the Mossel Bay Yacht and Boating Club (MBYBC) reporting an unmanned yacht broken her mooring at the MBYBC and drifting towards Dias Beach.
The sea rescue craft Rescue 15 was launched and on arrival on the scene the MBYBC rescue craft was in attendance and they had secured a towline to the yacht to hold her from drifting onto the beach.
NSRI took over the towline and the yacht was towed safely to her mooring and once safely secured no further assistance was required.
The yacht is unnamed. The owners were informed.
