–RCM Search and Rescue Station 37 (Sooke)
At approx. 1400, RCM-SAR Station Sooke was tasked to assist in a missing person case. The partner of the missing person contacted RCMP saying that her partner has not been seen since late last night, and the row boat was missing from their residence in the Sooke Basin.
Station Sooke departed and arrived in the Basin shortly after being tasked by Joint Rescue Coordination Centre Victoria (JRCC)/Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) to assist in the search.
As we were approaching Goodridge Island one of our spotters noticed a person on the island. We made the approach in 20knt winds and were able to safely extract the person from the island.
The person was in good spirits and with no medical problems, just a little thirsty. He was stranded on the island; the wind and seas prevented him from coming off safely. He left his home at 6:30 a.m. and had been stuck on the island for the last 6 or 7 hours.
The RCMP met us at the dock and his family was happy to see him safe and sound.
