Yacht rescue off Montague Island

Volunteer crews from Marine Rescue Narooma and Bermagui were activated yesterday afternoon (Jan 4th 2019) to rescue a 46 foot yacht with a steering problem in 3 metre seas north west of Montague Island.

On the rescue vessel Narooma 30 were Ross Constable, Alison Phillip, Glen Pikethly, Michael Wahren and Ken Ribbons.

On Bermagui 30: Caron Parfitt, Denise Page, Ray McLeod and Steve Angelo.

Marine radio communications: Lynda Bailey, Judy Barry-Cotter and Brian Gunter.

Land transport: Paul Houseman and Paul Bourke.

The Narooma crew spent the night in Bermagui as the Narooma bar was too rough to cross.

Thanks to all of our volunteer Report and photos : Marine Rescue NSW
