Launch Report 005-006/2014
YACHT AGROUND AT NEWTON HAVEN
At 20:18hrs on Friday 13 June 2014 Humber Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses ALB to the report of a yacht aground at Newton Haven.
At 20:32hrs Seahouses ALB launched and proceeded to the casualty. On arrival at the scene Craster ILB was on scene and the yacht was well aground. Following a discussion with the yachts skipper it was decided that the lifeboats would leave the casualty in situ and return when the tide was flowing.
Both Lifeboats returned to their respective stations.
At 2300hrs the same day Humber Coastguard requested that Seahouses ALB return to the grounded yacht and stand by while it re floated.
The yacht re floated and made its way under escort to a safe mooring in Newton Haven.
