Ramsgate-launch-to-cabin-cruiser-aground

Byline: Ramsgate RNLI’s inshore lifeboat (ILB) was launched at 7.07pm to an 8m. cabin cruiser, with 4 people aboard, aground on a sandbank in Pegwell Bay, Ramsgate near the River Stour entrance.
Page Content: On arrival at the scene, one of the ILB crew walked the tow rope in shallow water to the casualty and went aboard to make sure that there was no damage to the vessel. After making the tow fast, the crew member returned to the ILB, which then proceeded to tow the casualty into deeper water. Once fully afloat the casualty and crew were able to safely make their own way up the river to Sandwich, with the ILB escorting them.
