Called to Pettycur Bay for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

A member of the public called the Coastguard from Pettycur Bay to report a person apparently struggling in the sea close to a yellow boat. The lifeboat was launched and searched the area while a local Coastguard team talked to the informant. The lifeboat crew spoke to a local fishing boat which reported seeing the yellow boat being towed in, with no sign of any other distress and no other people in the area. The search was stood down and the lifeboat returned to station
