His Excellency joined the Peel crew for their normal exercise during which they  rescued one of the volunteer crew from the rocks near Glen Maye.

Shortly after the Governor had left the station and “Ruby Clery” was returned to the boathouse the crew were immediately called out again, this time to a real rescue. A 40 foot yacht the “Eravel 3″with a base in Brest , France had developed engine trouble whilst moored to a visitors buoy in Peel bay and was unable to escape a heavy swell and asked for assistance. The yacht with 4 people on board was quickly taken in tow and placed in safety at the breakwater.

The Governor is a great supporter of the lifeboat and has visited most of the Island stations during his service on the Island.
