Fishing boat capsizes at Armação de Pêra

FISHING BOAT CAPSIZES AT ARMAÇÃO DE PÊRAA fishing vessel, with a 43 year old Portuguese fisherman onboard, capsized yesterday morning near the coast due to the force of a wave, on Vale do Olival beach in Armação de Pêra.

Luckily the boat was near the shore, so the man managed to swim ashore.

A member of the public, who was on the beach, alerted Portimão Maritime Police at 10:35 am and the crew from the Ferragudo Lifeguard Station were immediately called to the scene.

The National Maritime Authority later said in a statement that “the fisherman reached land by his own means, with the crew from the Lifeguard Station refloating the vessel, which was later towed to the beach with the support of the Armação de Pêra Fishermen's Association”.
