Rescue near Seacliff

A vessel lost power off Seacliff yesterday morning and had to be towed to Port Chalmers.

A police spokeswoman said they received word about 11.40am of a craft having lost power about 150m off the coast near Seacliff, north of Dunedin.

There was no immediate threat to those on board, she said. Nearby vessels were asked to assist via Maritime Radio before the Otago Harbour Pilot came to the rescue and towed the boat back to Port Chalmers.
