Spokesman Steve Rendle said today that Maritime Radio recorded a call from the ketch at 2.30am on Friday, after the yacht's engine broke down during a trip from Opua to the Marlborough Sounds.

Its skipper was seeking a tow to Whakatane from about 20 nautical miles east of White Island, but there were no vessels available in the area to assist them.

The crew tried to reach the coast throughout Friday and Saturday despite being hampered by broken sails, Mr Rendle said.


presumably someone will salvage?


or will the air force shoot it full of holes, hazard to navigation, as a training exercise?
