During the early hours of this morning, NSRI Witsand volunteers were dispatched following a report of a rubber-duck that capsized on the seaward side of the Breede River Mouth with one person on-board in 3-4 m swells.
NSRI’s Craig Lambinon says that that the boats skipper, a Durbanville resident, was found holding onto the upturned hull of his boat. He we rescued and taken on-board the rescue craft.
“The NSRI then re-launched and managed to secure a towline to the rubber duck, which they towed onto the beach,” said Lambinon.
The man was brought safely to shore and is being treated for hypothermia, but required no further assistance.
