Donaghadee Lifeboat

Fishing boat brought safely to harbour

DONAGHADEE lifeboat volunteers put to sea on Sunday morning after a request for help from a fishing boat which broke down near Port Ramon on the Copeland islands. In fresh sea conditions the crew were able to establish a tow line and bring the 10 metre vessel back to the harbour for repairs. The Saxon was back on station by 1.05pm and made ready for its next operation. The lifeboat has been launched 23 times in 2015.
