Littlehampton RNLI rescue stranded leisure craft.


The skipper of the vessel had made a mobile telephone call to the UK Coastguard advising that he had run out of fuel and was unable to continue his journey and requested assistance from Littlehampton RNLI.

Littlehampton RNLI’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat Renée Sherman and volunteer crew launched at 9.21pm on Wednesday 18 October and headed out towards the reported scene one mile south of the harbour entrance in cloudy weather conditions, good visibility and a calm sea. On arrival the casualty with two adults on-board had dropped anchor to prevent any drifting. The lifeboat came alongside the casualty and the crew rigged up a tow line to its stern in readiness for its recovery. The anchor was recovered and the lifeboat commenced the tow back to the visitor moorings alongside the Harbour Boards Office, where it was safely moored. The lifeboat returned to the station at 9.46pm where it was refuelled and made ready for service.
