Yacht’s engine re-starts

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Sunday 18 August

Launched at : 15:45

Returned at : 16:10

Weather : Fine but with a F5 SW wind.

The Atlantic 85 went to assist a 30ft yacht on teh Chichester Bar with engine failure. On arrival however the lifeboat found that the yacht crew had managed to re-start their engine so it escorted them into the harbour. At Fishery Buoy they were asked if they could now continue to Chichester Marina and the skipper was happy to do so. The Hayling Lifeboat therefore informed the Chichester Harbour Patrol that this was happening and then returned to the Station.
