Weymouth ALB launched to a Pan Pan from a 28’ catamaran with 1 person onboard and suffering structural failure.
Once on scene it was apparent the lifeboat would not be able to tow the vessel due to the damage and weather conditions.

The This was achieved successfully, and the Lifeboat was released to return to station where it was refuelled and cleaned to COVID 19 requirements before being put back on service.
