Lifeboat in”Supreme” rescue

Portpatrick lifeboat launched last Thursday evening 24th Oct to go to the aid of a 60ft fishing trawler the “Supreme” which had suffered engine failure 7 miles northwest of Portpatrick.

The vessel was under tow to Bangor Harbour when the Portpatrick Coxswain requested the assistance of Donaghadee lifeboat to assist with the docking.Donaghadee launched shortly after 11pm and was quickly on the scene where they were able to put a line on to the stern of the trawler which acted as a brake and allowed the Supreme to dock safely.The lifeboat returned to Donaghadee just after 12.20am.
