They swarming waiting for Wharro!

Three crew on board an 11 metre catamaran en route to Bermagui had a dramatic rescue today after their vessel, purchased just days earlier, began taking on water after hitting a sunfish 13 nautical miles east of Green Island near Ulladulla.
The crew of the catamaran sent out a Mayday at 1255 and activated their EPIRB, climbing into two dinghies to await rescue.

Marine Rescue Ulladulla rescue vessel UL30 was responded, and with guidance from a Royal Australian Navy helicopter from HMAS Albatross that had been deployed to assist, and the signal from the crew's EPIRB, quickly located the striken vessel. The Naval helicopter remained after their arrival with life rafts ready to drop should they have been required.
Arriving at the stricken catamaran just after 2pm, UL30 took the crew of three on board and then delivered them safely back to dry land at Ulladulla, with all on board safe and well.

A securite is current for all ships in the area advising a navigational hazard from the sinking vessel at 35 17.427 South 150 46.656 East.
The crew on UL30 were Skipper Lesley Kelly, Warwick Haslam, Mark Squires, Clive Woodward and radio operator Allan Dean and Watch Officer Keven Marshall.


Probably a salvage.  Reasonable chance it won't sink for a while if only one hull's holed.

There has been no word about quarantine or testing prior to the Start. There is a rumour circulating that we won’t know if the Great Race will start until 22nd Dec and 72hr testing prior to the start.

Law Connect threw that race away. Scallywag had a shocker start but got a 2nd chance and took it. Whisper amazing for a fixed keel 60' leading all the mini maxis bar Wild Oats X.

Only unvaccinated would need to quarantine, but you have to be vaxxed to race.
 

So you test before leaving. Let’s hope CYCA have something set up for that.

Then coming back that’s up to your state.

Surprising how low it ended in the water..... it capsized ..... and yes, no watertight bulkheads or protection against this...?    

Bit of a worry if a Sunfish can take out a Catamaran.! 
A guy up the central coast reckons he found the rudder meaning it fell off up the track and they may not have known.....
Why didn't the tow the boat in on the day of rescue...?   That cost the insurance company as now it's a total right off... Not to mention it was a hazard to other traffic out there.... Bad memories of XL2
