Date: Monday 7th October 2013

Wind: SSW 3-4
Visibility: Good
Sea state: Slight
Time of launch: 2300hrs
Time of return: 0100hrs

Boats launched: ALB + ILB

Reason: C/G requested Amble ALB and ILB launch after recieving reports of red flares to the North of Amble Harbour. The ALB was used to search offshore and out towards Coquet Island while the ILB concentrated on shoreline searches of the coastline and also close into Coquet Island. White parachute flares were used by the crews to illuminate the area but nothing was found. After being stood down by the CG, both boats returned to station where they were made ready for service.
