Nine rescued as Noosa Bar strikes again
NINE people were rescued on Saturday morning after several boats got into trouble crossing the notorious Noosa Bar.
Four people were tossed out of a small tinnie in the early hours of the morning after it capsized, becoming stuck in the sand.
They were pulled from the water by a passing boat. No one was injured.
Another four people, from Noosa Outriggers, were towed back to shore after the vessel became swamped in the rough conditions.
Bill Watson, from Fishing Noosa, said it was just another day on the Noosa Bar, as conditions worsened throughout the morning.
"No one actually saw (the tinnie) get flipped," he said.
"They went out in the dark. That's the dangerous part."
Later in the morning, a man was towed in by the Coast Guard after a wave snapped the sounder off his boat and flooded the vessel.
"You can never be complacent with the Noosa Bar. It will catch you every time," Noosa Coast Guard commander Ian Hutchings told 7NEWS.
