The 15 meter long fishing vessel Haura sank off Mimizan, France. The Haura had struck an object in the water which punctured the hull. The fishing vessel quickly flooded causing the crew to immediately send out a distress call. The three crew on board abandoned ship to the life raft. The crew fired off a distress flare to direct the fishing vessel Santa Rita II to locate their life raft. The crew was safely rescued and were taken to St. Jean de Luz. No reports of injuries.
