Finnish yacht captain lost at sea ({{commentsTotal}})

At around 10 p.m. the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Tallinn was told that a person had gone overboard a yacht roughly half an hour earlier. The caller was one of two people on the boat, both of whom were Finnish citizens. The man lost turned out to be the captain.

The man remaining on the boat told the JRCC that he didn’t have the skills to sail the yacht by himself. He couldn’t specify the position of the vessel, or where they were headed in the first place.

The JRCC managed to pinpoint the yacht’s position about four nautical miles southeast of Kärdla on the island of Hiiumaa. The local police’s sea rescuers and volunteers reacted. The volunteers helped the remaining man off the yacht, while the police went looking for the missing captain.

Because of rough weather they had to give up the search at around midnight. Chief of the local police Aare Allik said early on Wednesday that they were putting together a search and rescue plan, and would continue the efforts to find the captain as soon as conditions allowed it.
