NMOC requested launch of ALB to a Mayday from dive boat that had two divers overdue by 45 minutes. Due to the nature of the incident, Indeed the ILB headed for the last known position of the divers and whilst in transit located both and they were well. Following this the vessel RV’d with ALB and the ILB and the divers were monitored as health conditions can deteriorate after an incident. The two divers were then transferred to the dive boat. Weymouth ALB shadowed the vessel who had the two divers on board to the entrance of Portland Harbour and as all was well left Viper to enter the harbour. From here the ALB RTB.
