Coastguard and lifeboat deal with grounded vessel

On arrival at the forward operating base , the team spotted a drifting vessel about to hit the banjo jetty.

The team immediately deployed to assist calling the NMOC.

Both Swanage RNLI lifeboats launched along with the Coastguard deploying for a possible water rescue.

The lifeboats arrived and quickly got the vessel under tow. The two on board the boat were surprised their anchor had dragged and with the weather pushed them ashore.

I just passed them in SKUA a few minutes before and he gave no indication that he was in any trouble! when I got back to the pier the next thing I saw was the ILB heading his way.

Another Good Job
