23 July 2013 - A third shout for Padstow Lifeboat

The crew of the Padstow RNLI lifeboat Tamar class 'Spirit of Padstow' launched for a third time today at 5.58pm today (Tuesday 23rd July) to go to the aid of a broken down rigid inflatable boat (RIB).

The 11-metre RIB with two persons onboard got into difficulties 4 miles south west of Dinas Head experiencing problems with the vessel's engine.

On arrival at the scene the lifeboat fixed a tow to the RIB and towed it back to Padstow arriving at the harbour at 7.30pm.
