Coastguard tasked both Ardboe & Kinnego lifeboats at 15.25 to a vessel with 11 persons on board which had lost its steering between Coney Island & Bann foot. Both boats arrived quickly on scene and it became apparent that a few of the causalities needed to be got of the boat and brought quickly to shore to lighten the boat load and allow more space for the remaining causalities to be towed back safely.
In such hot conditions the lifeboats were able to supply plenty of refreshments to keep the casualties cool & hydrated for the tow back to Kinnego Marina.
Both lifeboats back in base for 17.30.
