Returning from supporting the Emsworth fundraising branch at their Emsworth quay sale the Atlantic 85 happened upon a capsized Mirror dingy in Emsworth harbour. The single man was unable to right the dinghy because the dagger board had dropped out and floated away.  The lifeboat crew retrievedthe dagger board and helped right the dinghy. The dinghy then proceeded on it’s way unaided.

A minute after righting the capsized Mirror dinghy a man on his boat on a mooring attracted the attention of the lifeboat crew. He had broken his steering and been put back on his mooring by another boat, but in the process his tender had become free and was drifting ashore. The crew retrieved the tender and continued to return to the station and was made ready for further service.
