Express Dinghy stuck in the mud.

Boat Launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Saturday 16 August

Launched at : 16:35

Returned at : 17:48

Weather : Fine but with a F4/5 W wind

Responding to a report of an upturned dinghy in Mill Rythe Creek close to the holiday camp, the Atlantic 85 was launched. Solent Coastguard had informed us that the dinghy helm was in the water but could not right the boat. Arriving at the scene the crew found that the dinghy had its mast stuck in the mud at the bottom of the creek, and the daggerboard had snapped.  With the assistance of the lifeboat crew the boat was righted and the helm and boat were taken to the launching slip at Hayling Yacht Company, from where the dinghy had started out. Once the crew had checked that the helm was alright the lifeboat returned to the station.
