    We have just received a report that all onboard at the time are OK.

    Facebook Picture
    Ocean Racing Club of Victoria Inc. (ORCV)

    The yacht SEDUCTION has run aground on the return journey from Hobart to Melbourne.

    All 5 crew who were onboard are safe and well. The ORCV Incident Management Team have confirmed the Next of Kin of all crew have been notified.

    At approximately 0440 hours this morning Monday 5 January, 2015, SEDUCTION ran aground at Gull Island which is East of Cape Barren Island and South of Flinders Island, Tasmania.

    They were returning to Melbourne after competing in the ORCV 2014 Melbourne to Hobart ocean yacht race and they were on route to Lady Barron on Flinders Island.

    The 5 crew onboard, Richard Nichols (owner/skipper), Sean Miles, Howard Hedley, Steve Dale and Sam Bostock-Young were rescued by the Flinders Island Police Vessel "Protector 4" at approximately 0640 hours this morning and are currently at the Furneaux Tavern at Lady Barron on Flinders Island. Tasmania Police advised the crew were well prepared and organised.

    AMSA were coordinating the MAYDAY - two fixed wing aircraft and the Westpac Police Rescue helicopter had been despatched. All other assets were cancelled when the Police Vessel “Protector 4” sighted the crew.

    Other yachts in the vicinity heard their MAYDAY call, including two ORCV yachts, TRYBOOKING and CARTOUCHE, who were both approximately 4 hours away (on the west side of Cape Barren Island) and preparing to re-route to assist. TRYBOOKING turned back but were not needed so proceeded on-route to Melbourne. TRYBOOKING was returning to Melbourne after competing in the Sydney Hobart and CARTOUCHE was returning to Melbourne after competing in the Melbourne to Hobart Eastcoaster yacht race.

    The yacht is currently still aground and investigations are under way regarding a salvage operation including minimising the impact on the environment.

    SEDUCTION won the ORCV 2014 Melbourne to Hobart Westcoaster in all three Handicap Divisions (AMS, IRC and PHS) and also won the Sovereign Series which also included to Cock of the Bay and the King of the Derwent races in all three Handicap Divisions.

    Many thanks to the many marine rescue authorities involved and yachts and other vessels in the area who offered assistance, particularly the Tasmanian Police on Flinders Island who did a fantastic job.

    Thanks also to the Furneaux Tavern at Lady Barron on Flinders Island, who always welcome yachties with open arms.

    Our thoughts are with all those affected by this incident.

    The ORCV Incident Management Team are continuing to liaise with the SEDUCTION crew and Rescue Authorities including the Tasmanian Police, to provide any assistance required.

    Neville Rose
    Commodore.
