Second Launch Of The Day

Poole Lifeboat launched at 15.30 (Friday April 14) to a report of a broken down Yacht in the Wareham Channel.
When the lifeboat arrived on scene they found the 22ft yacht with 2 adults and 3 Children on-board had actually gone aground at Swineham Point, but just then the wash from a passing vessel had helped to re-float them.
A lifeboat volunteer was transferred across to check that all on-board and the vessel were okay, the crewman also gave some advice.
As the Yacht was happy to continue on passage back to their mooring at Shell Bay, the lifeboat returned back to station and was ready for service by 17.00.
