Man missing after boat capsizes

08:44 AEST Sun Aug 2 2009

A search has resumed for a man who has gone missing after a boat capsized on the NSW south coast.

Two men set out in a small aluminium boat from a ramp at Sanctuary Point, Shoalhaven about 1.30pm (AEST) on Saturday.

Four and a half hours later the boat overturned at St Georges Basin and the two men were thrown over board, police say.

A 22-year-old man managed to swim to safety, however a 26-year-old man is still missing.

Local police, Polair, the Rural Fire Service and an ambulance rescue helicopter are among those looking for him.

The 22-year-old man was taken to Shoalhaven Hospital suffering from hypothermia and is in a stable condition.

Police will investigate the cause of the boat to overturn, a police spokeswoman told AAP.
