The Kinsale Yacht Club crew that were rescued from their 40-foot yacht 'Loa Zour' off the Spanish coast last Thursday have rejoined the vessel and are heading for the port of A Coruña with an ETA this evening of 2300hrs.

Afloat previously reported the crew were safe after being rescued 80 miles off the coast of northwest Spain.

Kinsale Yacht Commodore Dave O'Sullivan told Afloat this evening "the sailing vessel has been recovered by its crew and is making its way to La Coruña under its own power". 

The Cork yacht 'Loa Zour', a Bavaria 40 type, under skipper Ger Grant departed Kinsale bound for A Coruña on June Bank Holiday Monday.

O'Sullivan has described the crew and skipper as 'very experienced' and that they have 'extensive cruising experience'. He also said the boat was 'very well equipped' for such a voyage.
