Coast­guard res­cue

Argyllshire Advertiser - - DISTRICT NEWS -

The Kames Coast­guard Res­cue Team (CRT) was called out to a bro­ken down ves­sel off Cas­tle Lach­lan in Loch Fyne on Fri­day Septem­ber 7.

The team went to Ot­ter Ferry where they made con­tact with the Tighnabru­aich RNLI Lifeboat crew who were en route to the boat’s lo­ca­tion. Kames CRT flanked the lifeboat from the shore as she sailed north to Cas­tle Lach­lan and acted as com­mu­ni­ca­tions re­lay be­tween Tighnabru­aich Lifeboat and Belfast Coast­guard. Once the lifeboat had the bro­ken down ves­sel safely un­der tow, and Kames CRT ver­i­fied that it didn’t need any fur­ther shore as­sis­tance, the team headed to Por­tavadie ma­rina to in­form ma­rina staff of the ves­sels’ ETA.

Kames CRT then re­turned to the sta­tion and en­sured the equip­ment was ready for the next call out.
