Wind: SE 2/3
Visibility: Good
Sea state: Slight
Time of launch: 1530hrs
Time of return: 1615hrs

Boats launched: ALB + ILB

Reason: The Lifeboats from Amble were requested to launch after a 26ft boat, with 3 P.O.B, reported machinery failure by the South Pier at Amble and was being pushed towards the cliffs by the tide. The ILB was first on scene and managed to help the vessel set an anchor to stop further drifting, soon after the ALB arrived on scene where upon a tow was attached and the vessel towed to Amble Marina. Both Lifeboats then returned to station and made ready for service.
