The National Sea Rescue Institute volunteers at the Royal Cape on Yacht Club Friday were informed of a 34 foot yacht SIX PA/K, with 4 crew onboard, which was experiencing problems sailing from Saldanha to Cape Town.
NSRI Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said the skipper, Martin Winter, informed the NSRI that they were experiencing mechanical motor problems in the 50 knot winds but were not in any dire emergency and were seeking to shelter at Granger Bay.
Lambinon said the NSRI Table Bay volunteer sea rescue duty crew was placed on alert.
He adds that they were later informed that they were at shelter in Granger Bay but their motor was not able to engage gears and they requested assistance to be towed into Port.
The yacht towed and brought safely to berth at the V&A Waterfront late on Friday.
