THV Patricia & Weymouth Lifeboat undertake a towing exercise


THV Patricia & Weymouth Lifeboat undertook a towing exercise in Weymouth Bay on the evening of Tuesday 8th March 2016.

The Patricia was on passage from Plymouth, and entered Weymouth Bay for shelter from the pending gales forecast overnight. The master of the vessel (also a volunteer Lifeboat crew member at Dartmouth RNLI Lifeboat Station)contacted Weymouth Lifeboat Station to offer the vessel for an exercise before she proceeded to anchor.

The opportunity was of great benefit to the volunteer crew in rigging and towing a heavy vessel. Our sincere thanks go to Trinity House, & the Master of THV Patricia for enabling this exercise to take place.
