A-Busy-day-for-Plymouth-lifeboat-crews

Byline: Both of Plymouth RNLI’s lifeboats were called out on Sunday at 2.28pm to multiple situations requiring their assistance.
Page Content:

The all-weather lifeboat the Sybil Mullen Glover responded to a report of a small boat on the River Tamar believed to be taking on water, while the smaller of the Plymouth lifeboats the Millennium Forester, answered a call for help off the Hoe area. A small rib type boat had suffered engine failure and was adrift with several persons on board. In both cases the situations were resolved and the two Plymouth lifeboats stood down.

Within minutes however the all-weather lifeboat was re-tasked to a 10 meter sailing yacht with engine problems south of the breakwater. With little wind and unable to sail the boat with two persons on board was taken in tow and returned safely to Yacht Haven marina.
