Called to Leven for a Vessel Adrift

People Assisted: 14

The lifeboat crew were called to the aid of a 20m replica Viking longboat in difficulty off Leven. The vessel was struggling with the weather conditions and had no alternative means of power. None of the people on board had lifejackets. Kinghorn lifeboat held the vessel off the shore whilst the Anstruther lifeboat headed to the area. A tow was passed to the Anstruther lifeboat and the vessel was taken to Methil harbour.
