On this day ………… 15th February 1929
Mr Robinson had a close shave when he fell overboard from a yacht off Smoky Cape, NSW on this day 1929. Another crew member saw him go over, but by the time the yacht was brought round, Robertson was almost a kilometre astern. The occupants of the yacht could not see him, but Robertson was saved by a flock of seagulls which sighted him and hovered over his head, giving the yacht an indication of his location. Robertson was in the water for more than half an hour before he was fished out.
