2 Australian nationals, yatch rescued by Navy and Coastguard in La Union

By Freddie G. Lazaro

San Fernando City, La Union (16 June) -- Joint elements from the Philippine Navy and Philippine Coastguard had rescued a yatch with two Australian national crews when it suddenly stopped at sea when experiencing mechanical malfunction last Wednesday near the shorelines in Bacnotan, La Union, a belated report said here.

Commander Ramil Enriquez, commanding officer of Navy's ship BRB Alberto Navarrete PG-394, told that a yatch with M/V shadow markings was successfully pulled by Navy's ship to Poro Point, San Fernando City, La Union after the rescue operation.

Enriquez named the two Australian crews of the yatch as Mauro Magliorilli and Pauline Wilkinson who are both on vacation.

It was reported that their from Taiwan was last June 6, 2009. The yatch, which was reportedly on her way to Malaysia, incurred the drenching of its steering mechanism and propulsion system that caused its sudden stoppage at sea.

The Philippine Navy learned the incident after they received a distress signal from Magliorilli.

The two foreign crews were subjected for quarantine while waiting for the complete repair of their yatch. (PIA Ilocos Sur) [top]
