Ryde Inshore Rescue have assisted yet another vessel with engine troubles off Ryde this evening (Sunday).

After an initial tasking to assist a speedboat on the rocks at the entrance to Ryde Harbour, as previously reported by Island Echo, Ryde Rescue 1 lifeboat was requested by Solent Coastguard to assist a vessel reporting smoke issuing mid-Solent.

After taking the casualty vessel into Portsmouth Harbour, Solent Coastguard tasked the lifeboat once again – this time to assist with a Pan Pan call.

One level down from a mayday. No immediate danger of life but some sort of issue/distress with the vessel or crew.

Is it only complete idiots that are taking to the water at the moment?!
