Donaghadee Lifeboat

Saxon to the rescue

DONAGHADEE’S RNLI Lifeboat was launched to assist a 15-foot Dory, with two people on board, after its engine failed approximately a mile north of Ballywalter. At the scene, second coxswain John Ashwood put a crew member aboard to assist with attaching the towline. Once the tow was secure, a course was set for Ballyhalbert, the casualty vessel was brought alongside the end of the harbour and assisted by Coastguards. The Saxon was back on station and ready for service at 4.30pm.
