Bazan Bay off the Saanich Peninsula was the site of a rescue at sea on Monday morning involving multiple vessels.
The Saltspring Island-based Canadian Coast Guard vessel CCGS Cape Naden and Sidney-based Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue 36 responded to a concerned citizen’s report that a 25ft motorboat had been pushed onto the rocks while trying to pull a beached sailboat off the beach at Bazan Bay.
“The motorboat, with two people on board, was towed to a nearby dock, and the sailboat was towed to Port Sidney Marina,” said Kiri Westnedge, Communications Advisor, Port Sidney Region. West for the Canadian Coast Guard.
There have been no official injury reports.
