Two sailors have survived an ocean capsize after a dramatic rescue in extreme sea conditions by the crew of the Royal Australian Navy destroyer HMAS Brisbane.
The pair spent 15 hours in the ocean after their yacht capsized near Wollongong on the NSW South Coast at 1am on Saturday.
The vessel was first reported missing at 1pm, sparking a search by HMAS Brisbane.
The two sailors were soon found, after a passing vessel spotted them.
They were found clinging to their vessel and were rescued in 56km/h winds and two-metre swells.
Despite spending hours in the ocean, the two sailors were assessed as being in good condition.
