The owner of a 7.0m Sport Cruiser called the volunteers at Marine Rescue Central Coast around 11:00am on Saturday 10 December. He was one of two people aboard the cruiser that was on Brisbane Water near Gosford Sailing Club. The man said his vessel had a mechanical problem and requested help to return to his berth at St Huberts Island.
Rescue Vessel Central Coast 21 that was training crew at the Little Box Head Bar was tasked to assist. Rescue Skipper Brian Warburton and his crew, Karl Leipa, Ray Lewis and Jack Bree soon had the cruiser in tow and back to its private jetty at St Huberts.
