RNLI Nora lifeboat is called out

A misty and murky evening for our crew as the pagers sounded at 8:45 pm,.

Falmouth Coastguard requested our assistance.

Our volunteer crew responded and quickly made their way to the Lifeboat Station to launch both boats.

With Coxswain Rob Cocking on the All Weather Lifeboat and Barney Stevens as helm on the Inshore Boat the crew made their way out to the Godrevy area to assist with a potential search.

After a short while our crew were no longer needed and they were stood down. The crew returned to the Lifeboat Station and readied the lifeboats for service.
