The National Sea Rescue Institute has rescued three fishermen adrift at sea after their small fishing boat developed motor mechanical failure off-shore of Paternoster on the Cape West Coast. NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon says the Mykonos duty crew was activated following a request for assistance from family members of the fishermen. The sea rescue craft Gemini Rescuer II (two) was towed to Paternoster from Mykonos and launched. Lambinon says the fishing boat was located about one nautical mile off-shore. The fisherman, all locals aged 43, were found safe on board and rowing towards the shore, but struggling against a strong wind. Their craft was towed to shore and they were reunited with their families. (Image:NSRI)
