Shout Number 18/2013

Date/Time: 30/06/2013 15:37 - 16:46

Called to Portobello for a Vessel Stranded

People Assisted: 2

A small racing dinghy had capsized off Portobello and a local rescue boat could not resolve the situation due to the weather conditions.

The lifeboat arrived to find the two occupants on the hull of the upturned vessel. They were uninjured and were recovered to the lifeboat to assist with recovery of the dinghy.

The 4m boat was righted in difficult conditions and taken back to the local sailing club.
