On Tuesday evening NSRI Lamerts Bay were alerted about three fishermen who had been lost at sea in thick fog, somewhere between St Helena Bay and Lamberts Bay. NSRI attempted to assist them using cell phone contact but lost contact later, said NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon

“The NSRI attempted to assist them using cell phone contact and explained to simply put out anchor and wait out until the mist lifted. We lost contact with them on their cell phones at about 4am on Wednesday morning,” said Lambinon

A search was launched by the air force at fist light yesterday morning. “At 11:20 the small boat, with all 3 men on-board, was found 11.5 nautical miles South West of Lamberts Bay and they were all reunited with their families,” said Lambinon
