29th January

RNLB Alfred Albert Williams (Tamar All-Weather Lifeboat 16-17) was launched this evening at around 8pm at the request of UK Coastguard to investigate a weak May Day call that had been received, in which the only information that was heard was "Curious Parrot" and Shanklin. 

The Alfred Albert Williams initially conducted a search off Shanklin (during which the Y boat was launched to talk to some anglers on the shore) and subsequently further to the west.   Having found nothing, the HM Coastguard agreed that she could return to Bembridge.   She was recovered by 10.40pm.
