Three men out of their boat!

Boat launched: Atlantic 85

Date : Monday 10 November

Launched at : 13:27

Weather : Cold with a F5 SW wind

UK Coastguard called and asked us to investigate a report of 3 men in the water from a capsized tender, in the vicinity of Northney Marina. The Atlantic 85 was launched and arrived at the scene of the incident to find that two of the men had swum ashore but that the third was missing. The Harbour Patrol vessel had also been paged and they were in the area and found the missing man in a moored boat in Girt Rythe. The lifeboat crew were asked to check the medical condition of the men. They started with the man in the Harbour patrol vessel and then put two crew ashore to review the condition of the other two. All were declared fit and well. The lifeboat then recovered their tender and took it ashore and the three men returned home to Southampton.
