We were requested to launch the ALB by Solent coastguard to assist an 18’ angling vessel that had machinery failure approximately a mile SE of the Nab tower.

The casualty was taken undertow just as another angling vessel reported having a similar problem half a mile south of our position.

We closed the gap and once alongside passed the tow of the first one to the second one, then towed them both back to the their home ports of Chichester and Langstone harbours.

The ILB was launched late afternoon to assist a broken down jetski off the Bembridge ledge buoy.

The jetski was towed back into Yaverland slip where it had departed from.
