Shout Number 15b/2013

Date/Time: 06/06/2013 10:10 - 11:45

Called to Oxcars for a Vessel Aground

People Assisted: 0

The crew relaunched to recover the vessel found aground during service 15a/2013.

The yacht was refloated on the next high tide and the vessel was towed back to Dalgety Bay where it was reunited with its owner.

It is understood that the yacht had come adrift from its mooring in Dalgety Bay the previous night, and it was considered to be a risk to other river traffic so the lifeboat assisted with recovery of the yacht.
