Weather : Overcast with a F3/4 W wind

Solent Coastguard requested assistance for a motor boat ‘Wave Hawk’ who had suffered engine failure out by West Pole mark, when a wave had come over the stern of the boat, swamping the 110HP outboard. Although they had set an anchor the ebbing tide was too strong and they were not holding the ground. The Atlantic 85 soon reached them, set a tow and took them back to safe haven in Sparkes Marina.
