Rnli-Plymouth-lifeboat-Rescue-thirty-mile-out-at-sea1

Byline: The volunteer crew of the all weather Plymouth lifeboat Sybil Mullen Glover responded to an early alert this morning (18 April)
Page Content:

All hands mustered at 7.45am to a received distress signal. An eight meter angling boat suffering with mechanical problems was adrift some 30 miles south east of Plymouth.

With a quick response, the RNLI lifeboat was dispatched on service to the casualty vessel. Upon arriving on scene, it was found that the angling boat with four people on board was unable to return to port under her own power and would require assistance. A tow was secured and taken up for the long journey back to the safety of Plymouth and Sutton Harbour.

The RNLI Plymouth lifeboat returned to her berth in Milbay Marina after six hours at sea. While always being on 24 hour standby,  this is the second rescue over the last few days for the local volunteer crews.
