Late Night Launch For Eastbourne RNLI

Thursday 5th October 2017

eastbourne buzz news - Lifeboat Night Rescue
 

Eastbourne Lifeboats were launched in the strong winds last night (4 October) to help a 33metre sailing vessel with six people onboard that had suffered engine failure.

Owing to the danger of its anchor dragging in the poor weather conditions, it was towed back to Sovereign Harbour by the Diamond Jubilee.

It was decided, that because of its size, it would be better to be moored on the lifeboat moorings in the outer harbour, rather than have it go through the lock.
