MVS Avocet to the rescue

While out on patrol on Sunday, Avocet rescued an anchored yacht in the middle of the small boat channel just off Diver buoy. The yacht had lost her rudder and was unable to navigate back to her mooring.

Avocet undertook a tow taking the vessel back to Lake Pier.

Coxswain David said “A very professional job from Brian, Tony and Neil helping to assist this vessel”.

This was a reminder how important it is to be aware of other water users in the harbour as a number of vessels passed causing a wash while the crew tried to establish the tow, making things harder then they needed to be.
