The St Peter Port Lifeboat was tasked to go to the assistance of a 15m sloop, at the request of the French Coastguard X-Mar Jobourg, at 14:56.
The ARZ which was being delivered to Dunkirk, suffered a fouled propeller approximately 1.5 miles North West of Guernsey. The Spirit of Guernsey departed at 15:12 and was alongside the casualty at 15:34. A tow was established and the lifeboat returned to St Peter Port with the ARZ in tow at 16:48.
St Peter Port Lifeboat was back on station at 17:15.
