Gallant crew to the rescue.

Boat launched: Atlantic 85

Date : Wednesday 20 February

Launched at : On exercise and diverted at 16:30

Returned at : 16.55

Weather : Calm but with a Force 5 biting E wind.

The Atlantic 85 was on a training exercise with an RNLI Trainer when they saw a capsized dinghy with two lady crew members in the water. The two ladies were having difficulty righting their boat so the lifeboat went to their aid. The dagger board on the dinghy had become jammed so the lifeboat went alongside and assisted in righting the dinghy and then brought it ashore at Hayling Island Sailing Club.

The lifeboat then resumed its training exercise.
