Bembridge RNLI’s Inshore Lifeboat launched to locate an upturned dinghy reported off Ryde
RNLB Norman Harvey (D-778 Inshore Lifeboat) was launched earlier today (8.11am) at the request of UK (Solent) Coastguard to investigate the report of an upturned dinghy off Ryde. Assisted by the very benign conditions, the dinghy was located without undue difficulty at 8.19am and taken under tow back to the station. It is thought that with the recent bad weather and high tides it had been washed out to sea. The Norman Harvey was re-housed by 9.39am.
