SIMON'S TOWN:Darren Zimmerman, NSRI Simon's Town station commander, said:At 09h58, Wednesday, 28 February, NSRI Simon's Town duty crew were activated by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) following a request for assistance from a crew of two men, from Kraaifontein and from Thornton, reporting motor mechanical failure on their 4.5 meter rubber-duck and although in no imminent danger, at anchor off-shore of Buffels Bay they required assistance.The Sea Rescue craft Spirit of Safmarine III was launched and on arrival on the scene we found that they had managed to get their motor started and we escorted them to Millers Point slip-way and once safely recovered they required no further assistance.MOSSEL BAY:JC Roos, NSRI Mossel Bay deputy station commander, said:At 20h30, Thursday, 02 March, our NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew launched our sea rescue craft Rescue 15 to rendezvous with the yacht Cosmos, sailing from Knysna to Mossel Bay, with a couple on-board.We had monitored the yacht Cosmos progress since noon the same day following a report from the Mossel Bay Yacht Club informing us of the yacht sailing under sail but making slow progress in near windless conditions after suspected fuel contamination rendered motor failure.With a Westerly wind developing we decided to launch to go and fetch them on their nearing Mossel Bay and we met up with them 6 nautical miles due East and took them under tow towards Mossel Bay Harbour.At the approach to Mossel Bay Harbour we rafted our sea rescue craft alongside the yacht and brought them into the harbour where they were safely moored and no further assistance was required.The operation was completed at 23h00.TO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONEMossel Bay NSRI boat.
