Larne lifeboat stops off in Wick­low for over­haul

Bray People - - News -

A LIFEBOAT be­long­ing to Larne RNLI paid an overnight stop to Wick­low on its way to Water­ford for the an­nual over­haul of the res­cue ves­sel.

On Satur­day af­ter­noon the vol­un­teers on board the Trent Class lifeboat were greeted by mem­bers of the lo­cal Wick­low crew as they docked. The trip to Water­ford for any main­te­nance work that may be needed usu­ally takes two days and it has be­come some­thing of a tra­di­tion for the north­ern crew to stop in Wick­low for re­fu­el­ing pur­poses.

Wick­low RNLI mem­bers were able to show their fel­low RNLI chums from Larne some Gar­den County hos­pi­tal­ity as both sets of vol­un­teers met up for a few so­cia­ble pints on Satur­day night.

On Sun­day morn­ing the Wick­low lifeboat was launched on an ex­er­cise mis­sion as the Larne lifeboat con­tin­ued out on its way to Water­ford.
