Date/Time: 31/05/2015 00:20 - 02:40

Called to Aberlady Bay for a Vessel Disabled

People Assisted: 3

The crew were tasked by Aberdeen Coastguard following a call for assistance from a 30’ sailing vessel which had suffered a broken genoa sail and difficulty with the main sail in variable winds. The yacht’s engine had then failed.

The vessel was located making little headway to Fisherrow, so a decision was made to take the yacht to Port Seton. The casualty was towed into the harbour where it was berthed with assistance from Fisherrow CRT.

Boat Crew: N Chalmers, J Wibberley, K Davidson, R Malcomson
