Speedboat on our doorstep !!

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Thursday 26 March

Launched at : 16:55

Returned at : 17:28

Weather : Fine but with a F6NW wind

Earlier we had seen a small speedboat buzzing about in the harbour entrance but later in the afternoon we were alerted by the Coastguard to go and assist the small boat which had broken down. We found the casualty anchored in the entrance to Chichester Harbour with one crew on board. We set up an alongside tow and took the vessel into Sparkes Marina where her crew could get ashore and sort the engine problem. Once secure the lifeboat returned to the station.
