CEBU CITY – Eleven persons were rescued after the motorized banca they were riding in failed to dock due to huge waves in Lapu Lapu City on Sunday.

MBCA Chester 1, skippered by Noel Pacaldo, carried 10 passengers for an island hopping jaunt from Marigondon to Olango Island last Sunday.

The banca returned to Marigondon at around 11 a.m., but big waves prevented it from docking.

The banca drifted for at least seven hours before the rescue team arrived.
