Tasked by HMCG at 21.00hrs to s 24ft Sports Cruiser aground on the Skane Flat. There where 4 POB including a child. The Harbour Masters RIB from Kinnego was already in attendance. The tow was taken over and the vessel taken to Kinnego.

One point of note, when the Lifeboat returned to Kinnego it was met by a loud round of applause by quite a number of campers, visitors etc on the quayside. Not something you see everyday, but appreciated by the crew just the same.
