The four crew members of a capsized catamaran off the Southern Cape coast have all been released from hospital.

The National Sea Rescue Institute says the Gulliver was flipped over by bad weather yesterday afternoon about 12-nautical-miles from Cape Infanta.

The four were only brought safely back to shore nearly 12-hours after their ordeal began. NSRI vessels from Witsand had been used in the rescue operation.

The capsized yacht is believed to still be adrift and maritime warnings have been issued to boats in the area.
