Date/Time: 06/06/2013 06:05 - 06:55

Called to Oxcars for a Vessel Aground

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat was launched following reports of a yacht aground on Oxcars Rocks. The volunteer crew arrived on scene 10 minutes after launching. No one was found on board, and the vessel was otherwise secured.

It was agreed that the volunteer crew would return to station and relaunch once the tide flooded sufficiently to refloat the 30' yacht where it would be towed to port.
