RNLI-Angle-lifeboat-returns-home-to-two-call-outs1

Byline: RNLI Angle’s Tamar class all weather lifeboat Mark Mason has now returned to her station after being away, undergoing modifications, for most of the summer.
Page Content: Her first call out, on her return, was late on Wednesday (24 September) to a 7m yacht, which had suffered engine failure about 20 miles south of Linney Head. There were two persons on board.

The lifeboat was launched at 11.52pm and once on scene a tow was rigged and a course was set for Milford Haven.

At the entrance to Milford Docks the casualty was rigged into an alongside tow and taken to the Mackerel Stage. With the casualty safely secured, the lifeboat was released and returned to station, where she was rehoused at 6.34am.

On Sunday (28 September) the Mark Mason launched at 11.47am, following a report that a kayaker had spotted a body in the water off Jenkins Point, Lawrenny. The Water Ranger and Police Boat Mike 66 had also been tasked to the incident.

The body was recovered alongside the Water Ranger’s craft and transferred to the lifeboat, which headed for Neyland. There, the body was handed over to the police and the lifeboat was later released to return to her station.

The Tamar lifeboat Peter and Lesley-Jane Nicholson made her last call out from Angle, after a busy summer on relief duty there, when she launched at 1.45am on 20 September to a report of a distressed person on the Cleddau Bridge, about 6 miles upriver.

Once on scene, the lifeboat stood by in case assistance was required. With the situation resolved by land personnel, the lifeboat returned to her station to be rehoused at 4.15am.
