ALB 13-17 Joel and April Grunnill


Clear, Slight, SW, F2




All-weather lifeboat (ALB) Joel and April Grunnill was requested (for her first official shout) to launch to the aid of a 13 meter motor cruiser, aground on the sand banks to the south of the town on saturday morning.

The cruiser, travelling north along the coast was stranded on sandbanks in the Wrangle area.

Once on scene it was established that the craft was so high above the tide that it would need to wait until the incoming tide some 3 hours later to re-float. the ALB returned to station and was recovered. to launch later to provide assistance to the vessel if needed.

Lifeboat returned to station.
