Marine Rescue Batemans Bay come to the aid of yacht

Late this morning Marine Rescue Batemans Bay rescue vessel BB 30 responded to an emergency call from a yacht with three people on board.

The yacht had experienced mechanical failure with the vessel's gearbox off Burrewarra Point, just to the south of Batemans Bay, and needed help.

The crew of David Murn, Peter Withington and Peter Bladewell were able to secure a tow to the yacht and assist it to port.
