EMERGENCY crews have resumed the search for a man who fell from his yacht while sailing off the Western Australia coast

The 33-year-old fell overboard in Cockburn Sound on Friday while trying to retrieve a dinghy that had blown away.

The dinghy was found at a BP oil refinery near Kwinana Beach, but no trace of the man has been found.

Two other men were on board the yacht at the time, and are safe and well.

The search resumed on Sunday morning with police and volunteer marine rescue vessels, as well as police air wing.

A land-based search was planned to focus on the shoreline from Woodman’s Point to the causeway near Garden Island.
