1.33 hours at sea, 1 person was helped


Whilst attempting to recover a boat onto a trailer at the Beacon slipway, the vessel lost power and drifted to the side, and aground.

Once the lifeboat arrived onscene, the tide was too far out and following liaison with the owner, it was decided that the owner would attempt to refloat on the next tide.

The lifeboat stood down and returned to station.
