Dunbar Lifeboat crew braves tough conditions to tow stricken fishing vessel

RNLI volunteers battled three-metre waves, winds of up to 60 miles per hour and darkness to tow a stricken fishing vessel to safety.

Dunbar’s lifeboat crew were called out at about 2.25am on Sunday 9th February 2020 to assist colleagues from Anstruther, Fife, to help a fishing boat stranded without power near the Isle of May.

The Ullapool-registered vessel lost its steering and then suffered engine failure after setting sail from Eyemouth at midnight for a night’s fishing.

Dunbar’s all-weather lifeboat (ALB) was requested by UK Coastguard and joined colleagues in the Firth of Forth.
