Donaghadee Lifeboat

Speedboat Recovered

24th July 2017

THE volunteer crew of the Donaghadee’s RNLI lifeboat launched on Monday evening at the request of the Coastguard after reports that a small speedboat had broken down and drifted onto rocks between Woburn Road and the Drumfad Road, Millisle. Once on scene, the Lifeboat’s smaller inflatable boat was deployed and approached the speeboat, which was being held off the rocks by a member of the Bangor Coastguard Rescue team. It is believed that the occupants had climbed onto the rocks and were assisted by Coastguards.  A line was attached and the speedboat towed back to Donaghadee harbour.
