Two sailors, aged 21 and 23, were rescued from the sea on Friday night, after sinking about 1.8 kilometers from the marina of Cascais, in the district of Lisbon, informed the National Maritime Authority (AMN).

According to AMN, the two young men had left the Clube Naval de Cascais (CNC) with a sailboat.

“The two sailors were located by a pilot boat that was nearby and that remained in place until the arrival of the elements of the Life-Saver Station, who carried out the rescue and transport of the two sailors to the marina in Cascais”, the authorities in a statement.

AMN states that it was not necessary to provide medical assistance, as the young people were physically well.

The sailboat, on the other hand, he informs, was towed to the marina in Cascais, with the support of two CNC vessels.

The search operations, coordinated by the Captain of Porto and the Local Commander of the Maritime Police of Cascais, involved, by sea, the vessel Rainha D. Amélia from the Cascais Lifeguard Station, two vessels from the Clube Naval de Cascais and, by land, elements of the local Command of the Maritime Police of Cascais.
