Motor boat aground

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : 16 November

Weather : Fine and light winds

The Atlantic 85 was asked to help a motor boat that had gone aground on E Winner bank. On arrival the water was too shallow for the lifeboat to approach so a crew member waded across to the vessel and helped to put out a kedge anchor. As the casualty was close to the Portsmouth Lifeboat Station they were alerted to stand by when the tide rose and to make sure the yacht was sound and OK.
