Coastguards coordinate search and rescue
From Jersey Coastguard
8th December 2022
Jersey Coastguard has been coordinating a major search and rescue operation this morning, after a collision at sea in St Ouen’s Bay.
The Commodore Goodwill collided with a Jersey fishing vessel at approximately 5.30am. Debris from the fishing boat is in the sea and the vessel is believed to have sunk.
Coastguards called out the RNLI’s inshore and all-weather lifeboats and two French rescue helicopters, Guernsey’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat and a French naval fixed-wing aircraft.
A large number of local fishing vessels have also joined the search.
The Goodwill has now docked in Elizabeth Harbour and Jersey Coastguard is continuing to coordinate the response.
