Junre Marais, NSRI Yzerfontein duty commander, said:At 18h07, Sunday, 18 July, NSRI Yzerfontein duty crew were activated following reports of a jetskier knocked off his jetski by a wave and appearing unable to get back onto his jetski off-shore of the Municipal building (formally The Fish House), 500 meters from Yzerfontein Harbour.Our sea rescue vehicle responded to the scene where we found the jetskier, a Malmesbury man, age 32, had managed to get to shore and his jetski had washed onto rocks.The jetskier was medically assessed and with no injuries having been sustained we investigated options to help him to recover his jetski.NSRI crew, assisted by the jetskier and his brother-in-law, recovered the jetski by carrying it over the rocks to their trailer.Once the jetski was recovered onto their trailer no further assistance was required.The operation was completed at 19h00.
