Donaghadee Lifeboat

Lifeboat searches for yacht

BELFAST Coastguard requested the launch of the Saxon at 12.43pm on Saturday after reports from a member of the public on the town’s Warren Road, that a yacht seemed to be in difficulty off the Copelands. The volunteer crew searched Donaghadee Sound as far north as Orlock Point and back towards the ‘Perch’. Having spoken to vessels in the area, who reported nothing out of the ordinary, the Lifeboat and crew returned to station and made ready for the next Shout.
