NSRI rescues sailors on Hobie Cat

The Jeffreys Bay NSRI were activated yesterday afternoon following reports that a Hobie Cat had capsized off-shore of Kitchens Window Restaurant.

“We launched our sea rescue craft and found the Hobie Cat with 2 men onboard and drifting towards the rocks near the Restaurant.

The men who are brothers visiting from East London, said that they lost sail power after a mast securing line snapped causing the Hobie-Cat, Summer Wind, to drift but it did not capsize.
