Lifeboats were tasked at 17:14 by Belfast Coastguard to attend a vessel with 5 persons on board that had broken down while making their way from Ardboe to Sandy Bay marina. Lifeboats attended the scene by which time the casualty vessel managed to get their engines started and were able to make their own way back to Sandy Bay. The casualty vessel was escorted  back to their destination and Lifeboats then returned to station where they were refuelled, and made ready for the next tasking.
