Yacht catches fishing lines.

Boat Launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Thursday 20 June

Launched at : 15:27

Returned at : 16:50

Weather : Fine and a slight sea with a SSW F1 wind

A 40ft yacht unfortunately caught lobster pot lines around its propeller 5 miles south of the Station. Due to the light wind this rendered the yacht fairly helpless and the Coastguard called out the lifeboat. The Atlantic 85 reaches the yacht quickly and a crew member went overboard and freed the rope from the prop so that the yacht was able to start its engine and continue its journey. Senior helm Colin Parke said ‘ The crew were very grateful and apologetic, but it can happen to anyone in the bay and we were pleased to assist.’
