Another engine failure!

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Sunday 25 August

Launched at : 20:37 (15 minutes after returning from the previous rescue)

Returned at : 22:25

Weather : A fine evening with the wind dropping to F3 N Easterly

Just after washing down and refuelling the Atlantic 85 went out again this time to a 35ft yacht ‘Artful Dodger’ with two crew on board and engine failure in Hayling Bay. The lifeboat put a crew member on board and took the yacht in tow to Langstone Harbour as her berth was in Southsea Marina and she was put on the ‘coming alongside’ pontoon at the entrance to the marina.  For the second time that day the lifeboat then returned to the Station and was made ready for further service.
