Yacht towed into port without incident

Geoff McGregor, NSRI East London station commander, said that during the afternoon of Saturday, 24th February, NSRI East London were alerted by the Transnet National Ports Authority, and then later by the Buffalo City Yacht Club, of the female French solo sailor aboard the yacht Kaerou, requesting assistance to get into Port later on her arrival at the Port of East London as the yacht was experiencing motor failure.

When the yacht was closer to Port at 20h26 the sea rescue craft Spirit of Lotto was launched and NSRI rendezvoused with the yacht and towed the yacht into Port without incident.
