Just after 08h30 on Saturday the 14th of March NSRI Shelly Beach’s duty crew launched SPIRIT OF DAWN following a request for assistance from the charter diving boat C-FREAKS reporting three passengers to be suffering severe motion sickness at Protea Banks.

On arrival on the scene, at Pinnacle Point, Protea Banks, 4.5 nautical miles from their sea rescue station, three women, one from Kimberley, one from Brits and a local from San Lameer were transferred onto the sea rescue craft, along with the husband of the lady from Brits, and were brought safely ashore. They were assisted with rehydration and some medical treatment for their acute motion sickness and then released requiring no further assistance.
