Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

I am not sure of the type of yacht involved in this rescue but have put the post in the multihull thread as a multi would be much more likely to stay afloat when overturned for this length of time.

Does anyone know any more detail about it?

So glad that the 2 men on board survived the ordeal.

Presumably the same rescue. Which raises the question of whether the press release calling it a "yacht" is accurate:


Marine Rescue NSW Twitter feed reports:
21 hours ago

"Marine Rescue vessels Port Kembla 31 and Shellharbour 30 have today been supporting NSW Police Marine Area Command in the search for two fishermen missing in deteriorating weather off Wollongong. Conditions are poor with heavy rain, rising seas and 30 knot winds."


and their Facebook page reports:
Marine Rescue NSW
21 hrs

SEARCH UPDATE
The two missing boaters have been located by a commercial ship, Arietta.
The two female boaters are to be transferred to the nearby HMAS Brisbane.
Their condition is unknown. All Marine Rescue NSW vessels have now stood down.

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

Marine Rescue (NSW) are using the terminology "boaters" in their FB page.

"Two missing boaters" and later "Two female boaters"

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

Yes it does sound like it could be the same incident but in that Marine Rescue update it says that they were 2 female "boaters" rescued which seems a bit unusual as well. It would be most unusual for 2 female fishermen to set out for a fish in the current conditions.

I really wish that the media could make sure they are reporting the correct information.

Since when do they say "boaters" in Aussieland? Last time I was there it was "Boaties" and "Yachties". Has this changed?

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

Presumably this is the same one, it's a "yacht" again but no mention of it being upside down.

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

No, it's not a commonly used term & I am a Commercial Skipper & thought it was a strange term to use. We also use fishos for fishermen too.

Yes, that certainly looks łike the one doesn't it? Just out of interest can I ask where you were able to source this information? I have looked up Notices to Mariners for the ports of Sydney & also Port Kembla & didn't come across it.

HYDROPAC is a regional notice system by the
NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY
https://msi.nga.mil/NavWarnings


You can download a daily summary from that page for your area of interest



The various coverage areas:





I don't go there very often. One member posts relevant notices on the Facebook Group: "Sail SE Asia (Southeast Asia Boat Information Sharing)"

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

Evening all,
just read the attached report, from photos it appears to be a mono that has lost its keel which would then explain why it inverted.

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

Thanks Stu... very handy, I wasnt aware of that site.

Thanks Ozsailer, the 2 guys are very fortunate that it remained floating & they were able to clamber aboard the upturned hull.



ATTN ADMIN.....Can you please therefore move this thread to the Monohull Forum?

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

Kinda strange IMO: the hull (or whatever part of the boat) that they are sitting upon is white. If it were an inverted monohull, one would expect to see bottom paint or a lot of growth.

Hope some clarification emerges in time.

You can buy white antifoul - not overly popular as orcas tend to mistake your boat for a great white.

Re: Rescue off NSW South Coast Australia

Pics on the evening news Sunday showed a relatively flat bottom, white, with a sail drive but no keel. I would have guessed about 9m too.
Seemed like a planing hull, so sport boat style perhaps, or an old quarter ton IOR racer perhaps even with daggerboard.

Maybe it's kept on a trailer?
