Called to Granton for a Vessel Disabled
People Assisted: 2
The lifeboat crew were cleaning the boat down after a training exercise when they were asked to relaunch to assist a sailing dinghy seen to be in trouble off Granton Harbour. The crew arrived to find the dinghy being held off the rocky shore by its two occupants, about half a mile west of the harbour, in a westerly wind with a slight swell.
The dinghy had suffered a broken mast, and was taken in tow to Granton Harbour.
