Falmouth Coastguard needed our help.

Both the Inshore and All Weather lifeboats were launched to assist the coastguard and police in a shoreline search between Clodgy Point and Carrack Dhu. After a couple of hours searching both boats were stood down and returned safely to shore.

The Inshore Crew were Jake as helm together with Johnny and Jack. The All Weather were Robin as coxswain with Paul le Bas, Dave Chard, Mike, Charles and Dan as crew.
