Called to Longniddry for a Vessel Aground

People Assisted: 2

The lifeboat was called to assist in the search for a catamaran yacht that had run aground following engine failure somewhere between Cockenzie power station and North Berwick. The lifeboat from North Berwick was already searching.

The yacht was located by a coastguard response unit, aground at Fernie Ness, Longniddry and both lifeboats converged to assist. It was refloated with the incoming tide and towed to Port Seton harbour.
