Incidents at Strand, Big Bay, Port Edward

STRAND:

Alan Meiklejohn, NSRI Gordons Bay station commander, said: At 15h18, Friday, 15th September, NSRI Gordons Bay duty crew were activated by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) following eye-witness reports of a SUP (Stand Up Paddle boarder) appearing to be in difficulty off-shore of Strand Beach.

The sea rescue craft Spirit of Surfski was launched but prior to our sea rescue craft arriving on the scene the man on the SUP managed to wade ashore and he required no further assistance.

BIG BAY, BLOUBERGSTRAND:

Rhine Barnes, NSRI Melkbosstrand station commander, said:

At 17h51, Friday, 15th September, NSRI Melkbosstrand duty crew were activated following reports of a surf-skier appearing to be in difficulty off-shore of Kids Rock, Big Bay, Bloubergstrand.  The man was observed falling out of his surf-ski and appearing to be in difficulty in heavy seas and strong winds.

We launched our sea rescue craft Spirit of Brenda and Blouberg Surf Lifesaving lifeguards launched their rescue rubber-duck.

On arrival on the scene a 52 year old Steenberg man was rescued onto our sea rescue craft and Blouberg surf lifeguards recovered the surf-ski onto their rescue rubber-duck.  Once safely ashore the surf-skier was re-warmed from mild hypothermia and he required no further assistance.
