Two crew members on board the disabled vessel deployed their life raft at 2243hrs as their vessel began to sink on one side. The crew made it safely into the life raft at 2253hrs and the air-wing confirmed they lost visuals on the target vessel at 2300hrs.

Western Port Coast Guard recovered the crew from the life raft shortly after 2300hrs and were instructed to take the two crew directly to San Remo by the Water Police to meet with Paramedics on standby.
