Two people were found on the NW corner of Castle Island at 6:15 this morning 14 August. Helm John Kearney and crew Ryan O’Mahony carried out a medical assessment of the man and woman who had scrambled ashore yesterday evening after their boat had capsized, and then the Shannon based Helicopter Rescue 117 took them to Baltimore for further medical attention. The crew of three had left Schull yesterday on a Drascombe Lugger, an 18 ft open sailing boat. The sailors had indicated that they had intended sailing either towards Long Island or towards Rossbrin. The ILB & ALB had commenced searching yesterday evening as darkness fell. The search was stood down after midnight and resumed again at 5:30 am and is continuing in the search for a third person.
