The Nelson Sailing Club came to the aid of a boat in distress on Kootenay Lake just past the Orange Bridge on Thursday.

Nelson Police deployed their boat in order to investigate after getting a distress call.

“Once out on the lake, it was determined that the initial boat in distress had been assisted by the Nelson Sailing Club,” said a release issued by the Nelson Police Department.

But in turn, the Nelson Sailing Club zodiac required assistance as it had developed motor issues.

NPD towed the NSC boat to the City wharf. Once at the wharf, it was determined that the NPD boat was in trouble due to debris caught in the jet intake.

The members of the Nelson Sailing Club then assisted NPD members in unclogging the jet intake so that NPD could resume marine patrols.

“We would like to thank the Nelson Sailing Club for rendering assistance to the initial boat in distress then being on hand to assist NPD,” said the release.
