bembridgernlilifeboatopenday_026Bembridge RNLI were tasked to assist a broken down motor cruiser off Langstone Harbour on Sunday evening, before also aiding a local vessel near the Nab Tower.

The ‘Alfred Albert Williams’ All Weather Lifeboat (ALB) launched at around 18:50 at the request of Solent Coastguard to the aid of the 32ft motorboat ‘Ligea’ that had broken down between Langstone Harbour and Bembridge with 2 crew onboard. Having located the boat and resolved her problem, Bembridge Lifeboat then escorted the vessel into Langstone Harbour.

Before returning to Bembridge, the ALB and her crew were re-tasked to assist a 28ft angling boat called ‘Wight Thyme’ that had broken down with a fuel problem just south of the Nab Tower. Unable to get her engine working, Bembridge Lifeboat towed the casualty vessel and her 2 crew into Bembridge Harbour.
