Search continues for a missing yachtsman on the East Coast

The National Sea Rescue Institute says a yachtsman is still missing off the Kei River mouth on the East Coast after a catamaran capsized on Sunday night. According to East London’s NSRI station commander Geoff McGregor two other crew of the 40-foot Tamuza were rescued. The Tamuza was en route from Cape Town to Durban. The rescue operation was launched after one of the sailors had only managed to send a distress signal yesterday afternoon. The survivors told the NSRI they had been asleep below decks when the vessel capsized, while the missing third man had been at the helm. None of the sailors has yet been identified.
