 Lotheni  (Tug)
2 hours ago by Timsen

Tug inspected after workboat incident
On Nov 17, 2017, the workboat "Uqoyi" capsized while the two harbour tugs "Uthukela" and "Lotheni" were taking the "Gan Trust" to a berth at Island View 6 in Durban. The chemical and oil products tanker was under pilotage at the time. The mooring lines, presumably secured to the "Uqoyi", became tangled around the tug’s propellers which resulted in the workboat capsizing, throwing a number of the personnel on board into the water. Those on board were all employees of the TNPA. They were rescued and three were later taken to hospital for assessment but were discharged the same afternoon. Shipping delays could be anticipated while the tug "Lotheni" undwerwent a full assessment. The South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) has been informed of the matter.

 Fv Christian M  (Fishing Boat)

Trawler detained after it broke down off West Cork
Indonesian crew members of the "Christian M" which has been detained in West Cork last week walked off the vessel and sought to be put up by Irish officials to enable them to plan for a journey home. The Marine and Coastguard Agency (MCA) had examined the trawler which had been detained by Irish authorities for a number of issues including a significant cockroach infestation and crewing issues. The ship has been fumigated twice and is now free from infestations. There remained a number of outstanding issues that meant the vessel continued to be detained, including the condition of the accommodation and training. The MCA surveyor was working with the skipper and an agent of the owner to address these issues. The vessel will not be allowed to sail until the MCA is satisfied these are being adequately met. The vessel, mainly crewed by Indonesian fisherman, was towed into Castletownbere after it broke down on Nov 8, 2017. The trawler was subjected to an inspection by the Irish Marine Survey Office (MSO) which found deficiencies and decided to detain the vessel on Nov 10. The crew remained onboard until the afternoon of Nov 17, in the Department of the Marine-run State fishery harbour. At that point, they were visited by both an official from the Indonesian embassy and Ken Fleming, a co-ordinator with the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF). Mr Fleming spoke to the 13 Indonesian crew with the assistance of the embassy official and they told him they wished to go home. With the assistance of gardaí, they left the boat to travel to accommodation in Dublin in the evening. Mr Fleming was demanding that the vessel’s owners paid any outstanding monies owed to the fishermen as well as the cost of airfares to get them back to their home country. He also planned to seek the repayment of any monies paid to agents by the men for their jobs. The ITF co-ordinator for Britain and Ireland said it was his understanding that three senior Spanish crew members would be staying onboard. The ship was likely to remain in Irish waters until a new crew has been brought in and the detention by Irish authorities is lifted. Report with photos: www.irishexaminer...

 Ara Austral  (Other Ship)
3 hours ago by Timsen

Research ship looking for missing submarine
The oceanographic ships "Ara Austral" and "Puerto Deseado" have reached the search zone of the missing Argentinian submarine "San Juan" with the entire team of scientists from CONICETDialoga, UBA and Segemar on board. The "Austral" is equipped with a Norwegiam multi-beam echo sounder EM 122 Kongsberg capable of displaying real-time depths of up to 11,000 meters with an accuracy of 99.9% in real time. The ships had sailed in the morning of Nov 18, 2017, from the port of Mar del Plata. As of Nov 20, no news on any traces have been found, signals detected on Nov 18 probably originated from other source. On Nov 18 seven indistinct satellite signals were detected by Argentinian Navy. The US satellite company, Iridium Communications, which was brought in to help find the vessel, said the signals did not come from the sub and may have come from other satellite equipment. On Nov 18 the International Submarine Escape and Rescue Liaison Office (ISMERLO), which is dedicated to the search and rescue of sunk submarines around the world, claimed it detected the "San Juan" about 300 kilometers east of Puerto Madryn at some 70 meters depth which was, however, not confirmed. A full-scale SAR is under way in waters near the last known position of the missing submarine, including all available Navy ships and planes, and merchant marine and fishing vessels in the area. There wer e44 crew members on board when the boat went missing on Nov 15. Initial reports mentioning storage battery fire weren’t confirmed by latest updates. The emergency beacon didn’t surface so the rescuers didn’t know the exact position of the submarine, and therefore were unable to locate it. Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Peru, the United States, Great Britain and South Africa offered their help after the boat disappeared in waters of Puerto Madryn, northern Patagonia. The TR-1700-class diesel-electric submarine was in active service with the Argentine Navy since having been built at the Thyssen Nordseewerke in Emden in 1983. It has a displacement if 2140 tonnes (surfaced) and 2336 tonnes (submerged), and an armament of torpedoes.

Argus assisted distressed yachtsman
Royal Navy flight crews came to the aid of a British yachtsman stricken in rough seas in the Bay of Biscay on Nov 17, 2017. Wildcat helicopters from the 825 Naval Air Squadron scrambled to an SOS call from the yacht "Takita" after it lost its mast in a storm during a journey from the Azores, in the mid-Atlantic, to Britain. The crews circled three times in strong winds off the French coast before managing to spot the 30ft yacht, which had lost its radio transmitter but was still seaworthy. The sole yachtsman pulled alongside the RFA "Argus", , and the ship’s crew passed him jerrycans of fuel enough to allow him to reach Brest in France for repairs.

Patriot disembarked saved yachtsman at Fremantle
A solo yachtsman who had to be rescued by the "Patriot" after his boat's mast was struck down in heavy weather off the coast of Perth has arrived safely in Fremantle in the evening of Nov 20. The man was believed to be in good health. The man had been in the middle of an around-the-world trip when he ran into trouble around 2100 km west of Perth. He activated an emergency signalling device, which was relayed to a US emergency response centre and then to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. A broadcast was sent out to ships in the area, and was eventually answered by the "Patriot". The ship changed its course in order to pick-up the stranded yachtsman, and a Falcon 900 jet aircraft was dispatched from Perth to aid in the search. The sailor was picked up on Nov 17 at around 1.20 p.m. and arrived at the Patrick Terminals Fremantle on Nov 20 at 8 p.m. The yacht has been left at sea. Report with photo: www.watoday.com.a...

 Rygercruise  (High-Speed Craft)
4 hours ago by Timsen

Disabled ferry towed to Bergen
On Nov 17, 2017, at 3.30 p.m. the Norwegian Coastguard vessel "Tyr" assisted the "Rygercruise in the Osterfjord because the ferry had suffered propulsion problems. About a hundred meters of rope had fouled the propeller of the Rødne Fjord Cruise catamaran which was underway between Bergen and Mostraumen in the eastern part of the Osterfjord with passengers on board. The "Tyr" was nearby and could assist on short notice. As the ferry had two propellers there was still some momentum, but it had rocked violently when it got the rope in the propeller. The ship was safely taken in tow and berthed in Bergen.

 Norfolk Guardian  (Cargo Ship)
5 hours ago by Timsen

Cargo ship with rescued yachtsman aboard unable to dock due to storm
After the New Zealand yachtie Phil van der Mespel was rescued off Norfolk Island by the "Norfolk Guardian" nearly 200 km east of Norfolk Island after his 10-m yacht "Waimanu II" sank on Nov 18, the ship was unable to dock at Norfolk Island as atrocious conditions continued in the Pacific. A combination of high swells and limited harbour facilities on Norfolk Island, about 1000 kilometres north of New Zealand, meant the cargo ship was waiting in a sheltered spot north east of the island. Van der Mespel was expected to be dropped off on Norfolk island on Nov 20 as weather cleared. He had been sailing solo from Vanuatu to Marsden Point on his 10-metre sloop. 30-knot winds had broken the yacht's mast, puncturing its hull. He was forced to abandon the "Waimanu II" and was spotted by an RNZAF Hercules drifting in rough seas on a life raft at 11.50 a.m. 166 km east of Norfolk Island. The RNZAF Hercules dropped a package with food, water, and a note to Phil's life raft, but he was unable to do much more than wave back for much of his time. The rescue was completed at around 3 p.m. Report with photos: https://www.stuff.co.nz/n...

Container ship rescued yachtsman
The 67 year old Norwegian skipper of the yacht "Ilanga" which was distressed in 50 knot winds and very heavy seas east of Norfolk Island on Nov 18, was picked up on good health from the 12-metre yacht about 140 nautical miles northeast of Cape Brett on Nov 19 around 5 p.m. The rescuers battled southerly winds of 25 knots and swells of up to 3,5 meters to reach the damaged yacht. The "Southern Lily" arrived in Auckland and berthed at the Jellicoe Wharf in the afternoon. Earlier on Nov 18 RCCNZ had coordinated the rescue of a Kiwi yachtsman who had to abandon his yacht "Waimanu" 90 nautical miles east of Norfolk Island. In that case, a defence force C-130 Hercules circled over the location of the life raft while the cargo ship "Norfolk Guardian" was diverted to the location. The Kiwi yachtsman was taken on board the "Norfolk Guardian" and due to arrive at Norfolk Island. Report with photo: www.newshub.co.nz...

Skipper of Ilanga rescued by cargo ship
The Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand was contacted by a 67 year old Norwegian yachtsman whose "Ilanga" was distressed in 50 knot winds and very heavy seas east of Norfolk Island. He activated his emergency beacon on Nov 18, 2017, at 4.14 p.m. The "Ilanga" has damaged sails and rigging and a broken window, and had taken on some water but was not in danger of sinking. There has also been a fire in an electrical panel. The "Ilanga" was 140 nautical miles northeast of Cape Brett. The RCCNZ diverted the container ship "Southern Lily" to come to the "Ilanga"'s aid which was due to meet the yacht at about midday on Nov 20. Mayday calls were continuing to be relayed in case another ship might be closer. A New Zealand Defence Force P-3K2 Orion flew over the "Ilanga" in the evening and returned on Nov 19 to help the "Southern Lily" rendezvous with her. The Norwegian man was picked up on good health from the 12-metre yacht about 140 nautical miles northeast of Cape Brett on Nov 19 around 5 p.m. The rescuers battled southerly winds of 25 knots and swells of up to 3,5 meters to reach the damaged yacht.

 Kinda Magic  (Sailing vessel)

Yacht sank off Mozambique - tanker saved crew
On Nov 16, 2017, the "Kinamagic" sank around on its delivery voyage to the Seychelles and had left Hout Bay, Cape Town, on Oct 20 with a crew of four on board. The crew had stopped in at Mossel Bay and East London, but because weather conditions were so good, they decided not to stop in at Richards Bay and continued up to Mozambique. The Maritime Rescue Co-Ordination Centre (MRCC) based in Cape Town first received a distress signal just before 7 a.m. about 215 km from Ilha Do Fogo (Mozambique) and approximately 175 km directly from the shore. The tank m/v "Mersini" which was in close proximity was contacted them and requested to divert to assist the distressed yacht. The tanker arrived at the scene just after 8.3 0 a.m. and found the four South African sailors had already got into their life raft and the yacht was partially submerged. The four were plucked to safety and taken to the Comoros. The "Kinda Magic" sank soon after the rescue.
