First ‘shout’ of 2016.

Boats Launched : Atlantic 85 and D-Class

Date :  Sunday 25 January

Launched at :  15:28

Returned at : 16:25

Weather : Cold but reasonable and with a F3 SW wind.

Both Lifeboats were launched at the request of UK Coastguard to assist a power boat with total electrical failure at the top of Chichester Harbour and to the East of Langstone Bridge. It was 4 hours after high tide and so the Atlantic 85 was sent for speed to reach the casualty, and the D-Class in case she was in shallow water. The faster lifeboat proved able to reach the power boat and took her under tow, so the D-Class ‘Jacob’ returned to the station. The power boat was taken to Northney Marina and moored alongside a pontoon.  The Atlantic 85 then also returned to the Lifeboat Station.
