HM Coastguard paged LNR at 17:41hrs and requested the launch of the lifeboat to the aid a yacht that was reported as having run aground close to Rams Island.

Whilst on route to the search area an update was received that the casualty vessel had regained propulsion and was able to make its way to the south jetty on Rams Island. The lifeboat proceeded to the island to make contact with the skipper. After consultation with the skipper and the Coastguard they were happy that further assistance was not required and the lifeboat was stood down and returned to base.

All units made ready for the next tasking.
