2.63 hours at sea


The lifeboat was launched to investigate a PLB activation. An extensive search was undertaken with Coastguard rescue teams and helicopter R199.

The Coastguard undertook further investigations and satisfied themselves that the PLB had gone off ashore, possibly following disposal, and the search was called off.
