DISABLED SPEED BOAT 1 MILE OFF SEAHOUSES
At 11.09hr on Sunday 24th July 2016, Seahouses Lifeboat Operations Manager received a phone call from Beadnell Launching Slipway, reporting a small speed boat with two persons on board, broken down near the North Sunderland Buoy, 1 mile off Seahouses. He immediately contacted Humber Coastguard, and requested the Inshore Lifeboat be paged for launch.
The boat was quickly located and towed back to Beadnell by the Inshore Lifeboat where it was landed safely, and was met by the local Coastguard Rescue Team from Seahouses who gave the occupants some safety advice. The Inshore Lifeboat then returned to station.
