Capsize in Fowey Rythe

Boat Launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Saturday 27 April

Launched at : 13:32

Returned at : 14:22

Weather : Cold but clear with a F6 NNE wind

A member of the public made a 999 call about a capsized vessel, thought to be a catamaran, with a person in the water waving for help. They were in Fowey Rythe just off the Emsworth Channel. Solent Coastguard requested we launch and the Atlantic 85 was sent to investigate but as it reached the area further information was relayed that the dinghy had been righted and the helm was sailing it back to Emsworth SC.

The lifeboat located the dinghy, in fact a Laser 400, and made sure that no-one on board needed medical help. They then returned to the station.
