On Friday the 28th July the Marine Rescue Central Coast radio operators received a call from Marine Rescue Norah Head. MRNH advised that a vessel that was off Terrigal had logged on with them and were requesting assistance due to an engine problem.
Rescue vessel Central Coast 22 was tasked to assist. The call out crew quickly got to the Point Clare base and got CC22 ready for the trip to Terrigal.
They left the base at around 10:15am and headed to the location of the vessel needing assistance.
At around 11:15am CC22 located the vessel approximately 1.5nm North East of Terrigal Haven, the crew quickly got the towline attached and headed into Terrigal Haven to drop the vessel off at the ramp.
The tow was completed at approximately 11:50am and the crew onboard CC22 made their way back to the Point Clare Base
The trip was slow with a maximum comfortable speed of 8 knots due to the sea state.
The crew had to make a quick pit stop at the Booker Bay Marina to refuel, and once that was complete they continued their way back to base finally arriving just before 2:00pm.
