VOLUNTEERS from Margaret River SES and Sea Search and Rescue have been praised for their efforts in looking for missing Australind yachtsman Ian Shardlow.

Senior Sergeant Paul Daly, who was seconded to the police command team co-ordinating the search from Busselton, said the local SES and SSR “did a wonderful job”.

“Both the local volunteer services were involved and let me tell you, standing on deck looking for someone in the water for eight hours is very, very draining,” Senior Sergeant Daly said.

The search for Mr Shardlow, 76, who is believed to have fallen overboard without a lifejacket last Thursday, was scaled back at the weekend. His six-metre catamaran was located off Busselton with its sails down and motor running.
