On Sunday evening the National Sea and Rescue Institute Mykonos duty crew were activated by the Transnet National Ports Authority following a request for urgent assistance from the 48 foot yacht Clifton with 6 crew on board reporting to be taking water approximately 1 Nautical mile off-shore of Jutten Island, 5 nautical miles from our sea rescue base in Mykonos

“We launched our sea rescue craft Spirit of Freemasonry and on arrival on scene all 6 crew were taken off their yacht onto our sea rescue craft.” Craig Lambinon said.

The crew all men aged between 50 and 60 year olds, two from London, United Kingdom and the remaining crew from Cape Town were not injured.

“They were brought to our sea rescue base and had made arrangements from there.” Lambinon concluded.

The yacht was listing and partly submerged. It is unknown what caused the yacht to take water.
