At 15:17 on Saturday 15th June 2019, Guernsey Coastguard received a telephone call from Jersey Coastguard who had been contacted by the sailing vessel “Addiko” asking for assistance.
The vessel with 2 persons onboard, had suffered engine failure and was becalmed 13 nautical miles south west of St Martins point on the south coast of Guernsey and was unable to proceed to St Peter Port.
An all ships call was put out to any vessel in the area that could assist “Addiko” however there was no response and therefore the St Peter Port Lifeboat the “Spirit of Guernsey” was launched at 15:56 and proceeded to the scene. Once “Addiko” was located, a tow was established and the vessel was towed safely back to St Peter Port, arriving shortly after 18:40.
The Lifeboat was back on station at 18:53
