Lifeboats were tasked by Belfast Coastguard at 12:28pm to search for a vessel with 2 persons on board that had launched from Kinnego and was on route towards Rams Island. The casualty vessel lost engine power and it was uncertain if they were drifting or at anchor. Our lifeboats launched into South Easterly winds (gusting at Force 8) and made best speed towards the southern side of Rams Island.
The lifeboats located the casualty vessel at Lady Bay and were able to secure a towline, check on the condition of the persons onboard and bring the vessel to safety.
The lifeboats were then stood down and returned to base where they were cleaned and fuelled for the next tasking.
