49’er in difficulty.

Boat Launched: Atlantic 85

Date: Friday 3rd August

Launched at: 16:17

Returned at: 17:17

Weather: Fine and sunny with a Force 4 SW wind.

A fast racing 49’er dinghy suffered a rig failure and was in difficulty in the entrance to Chichester Harbour. The strong ebb tide was taking it out to sea. The Atlantic 85 was launched and went to the dinghy where the crew helped to sort out the rig, enabling the dinghy crew to sail slowly into the harbour escorted by the lifeboat. The lifeboat returned to the station and was made ready for further service.
