Lady Liz does biz – yacht crew rescued by Police

Challenging sea conditions during gutsy rescue by Police Maritime Unit

At about 9.00pm last night (30 January) the 38ft yacht Enfin with two men on-board was travelling from Mana to the Bay of Islands.

“The vessel encountered rough sea conditions in Cook Strait and as they passed Wellington the steering system broke,” says Senior Sergeant in charge of the Wellington Police Maritime Unit, Dave Houston.

This meant the yacht was almost impossible to control and they were drifting offshore rapidly.
