Eden: Man and dog rescued after boat crashed into rocks

A man and his loyal dog ‘Chewie’ are back on deck after Marine Area Command came to their rescue off the state’s far south coast.

About 10am yesterday (Thursday 8 October), officers from the Eden Water Police were called to Twofold Bay at Eden, following reports a yacht had encountered trouble at rocks.

The skipper, a 54-year-old man, and his dog ‘Chewy’ were rescued onboard a police vessel while his yacht was towed from the rocks.

The man was brought back to shore, where he and his trusty sidekick were given towels to dry themselves. The yacht suffered structural damage.
