Callala yachts left high and dry after storm | video

MONDAY night’s wild weather beached two yachts at Callala Bay.

Silver Heels and Gunna were both left high and dry on the beach on Tuesday morning after breaking their moorings in the strong winds and rough surf.

Ulladulla man David Boonaerts made the trip north to ensure the family’s Top Hat yacht, Pavo, was safe and secure.

“We’ve owned the boat for around a year-and-a-half and I saw the news about the dangerous surf and rough conditions and decided I’d better come check and make sure everything was okay,” he said.

“I don’t know who owns the washed up yachts but it’s going to take a bit of work to get them refloated.”

In one saving grace for boat owners, the carnage was not as bad as the 2012 storm which wreaked havoc and washed a number up on shore.

More than 50 boats are moored off the beach at Callala Bay.
