Lifeboats paged at 12:02 by Belfast Coastguard to reports of a cruiser that had hit rocks on the south side of Rams island.

Lifeboats launched and proceeded to the area to commence a search; the casualty vessel was located at Lignaboy Point. Once on scene the crew confirmed all onboard were ok before a tow was commenced and the vessel brought off the rocks.

A further inspection was carried out and the casualty vessel with 2 persons on board were returned safely to Derramore Quay.

Lifeboats returned to base, washed, and refuelled ready for our next tasking.
