5th November

RNLB Alfred Albert Williams (Tamar All-Weather Lifeboat 16-17) was launched at the request of UK Coastguard at around 2.10pm this afternoon to assist Wanderer, a 40 foot sailing yacht, with 3 crew onboard that had lost the top section of her mast and had a fouled prop.   

Having located the Wanderer near No Mans Land Fort, she was put under tow to Gosport Marina.  Once she was safely alongside, the Alfred Albert Williams returned to Bembridge and was re-housed by 4.30pm.
