ILB ‘Pride of Leicester’ was tasked to a 10-metre cruiser which had run around on Breydon Water with 6 people and 2 dogs onboard.  The ‘Pride of Leicester’ made speed to the cruiser which was found to be listing quite heavily to port.  All onboard were concerned that the cruiser was going to capsize.

Rescue attempts were made by the crew but due to cruiser being very high and dry and with the fast-moving tide the crew couldn’t reach them.   The crew requested assistance from the Coastguard rescue helicopter which arrived promptly to lift the 6 persons to safety.  The ‘Pride of Leicester’ stayed in the area in case further assistance was required.

During the final lift of the 6th person and first dog, the second dog, ‘Trevor’ the Dalmation managed to break free back onto the boat and onto the mud.  The lift was in progress so had to continue without Trevor.

The lifeboat crew standing by made best speed back to the casualty craft to retrieve ‘Trevor’ but after many attempts they could not coax him close enough to the lifeboat so HM Coastguard had to make the difficult decision to stand the crew down.

The crew reluctantly returned to station.  Once back, a plan formulated to use our ALB’s daughter craft with outboard motor to get closer to the mud than our ILB could.  The crew set off once again with the daughter ‘XP’ boat in tow.

After navigating through thick fog back on Breydon Water, the crew came upon the rescue tug from Everitt Marine Services who, in the interim with the rising tide, had managed to retrieve Trevor and were awaiting high water to tow the cruiser off the mud.

Trevor was happy aboard the Everitt boat so ‘Pride of Leicester’ returned to station.

If any coastal emergency dial 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard.

Take care near cliffs - know your route and your limitations.

Have a plan - check the weather forecast and tide times.

Here are some pictures that our crew took.

And STILL they run aground!!! What's so difficult about keeping red posts on one side and green on the other? Makes you despair for humanity.  Smile

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!

I think the thick fog relates to the return trip of the ILB, much later than the initial call out. No sign of fog in the photo of the helicopter. As the call for help came in at 16:00, I don't think fog would have come into the equation. The only other explanation would be engine failure, although I would have thought it would have been mentioned in the write-up.

Regards, Ray.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged by Humber Coastguard at about 1600 today to reports of a man in the water near Oulton Broad. The crew were quickly down the station and preparing to leave when we got the message to stand down as the casualty was out of the water and we were no longer required. We packed away the equipment ready for the next call. Thanks to all the crew who turned out.

12/09/2020 Tasked to Saint Benet's Abbey along with HM Coastguard Winterton CRT. To investigate the sighting of what was believed to be Distress Flares,  At scene liaised with Broads Beat and jointly investigated,  The conclusion arrived at was that the smoke that had been reported actually came from an aircraft conducting aerobatics and using smoke.  #149/20
