A man and his loyal dog ‘Chewie’ are back on dry land after NSW Police Marine Command crew came to their rescue off the NSW far south coast.
Police say that at about 10am yesterday, officers from Eden Water Police were called to Twofold Bay at Eden, following reports a yacht had encountered trouble at rocks.
The skipper, a 54-year-old man, and his dog ‘Chewie’ were rescued onboard a police vessel while his yacht was towed from the rocks.
The man was brought back to shore, where he and his trusty sidekick were given towels to dry themselves.
The yacht suffered structural damage.
