2012 Incident #9 15.04.12 1407UTC #1038

The IRT was tasked to investigate the circumstances surrounding the breakdown of a 5 metre speedboat 1.5 nautical miles SW of Lyme Regis Harbour.  The boat was towed in by a local fishing vessel after issuing a distress call to Portland Coastguard and other local mariners.  The 3 adults and 3 children on board were safe and well despite their engine failure.  The crew and the boat were well equipped with life jackets, VHF radio and flares if necessary.
