Loss of the MFV Lincoln

The executive committee and members of SADSTIA express their sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of the men who lost their lives over the weekend as a result of the loss of the fishing trawler, MFV Lincoln.

The Lincoln was apparently swamped by very heavy seas 30 miles south of Hermanus at approximately 18h00 on Sunday evening 27 September 2015.

SADSTIA will lend its full support to the owners of the vessel, Viking Fishing, over the coming days and weeks.
