60kt winds and 7m seas. Supposed to be worse tomorrow too!
Our crew flew from Whangārei at 9.30am on Sunday morning to assist a stricken yachtie 25 nautical miles east of the North Cape, after the skipper had activated his distress beacon while sailing a 12-metre sloop believed to be taking on water.
Our crew were supported by an Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew who, as with previous offshore missions in Te Tai Tokerau, flew to the vessel as back up to their fellow Northland chopper team.
Our Captain says swells forecast to be six metres were up to ten metres at times, with wind gusts up to 50 knots – a similar wind strength to Cyclone Gabrielle in February 2023.
The Rescue Swimmer/Paramedic was lowered to the vessel by the Winch Operator/Critical Care Paramedic in challenging conditions, while the Captain and Co-Pilot kept Helimed5 (‘Oscar’) steady.
Once the skipper (the sole occupant of the vessel) was winched from his inflatable boat to the Northland Rescue Helicopter, he was flown to Bay of Islands airport at Kerikeri where he was supported by New Zealand Customs and Police.
