Assistance of a French yacht, the Kentan

The St Peter Port Lifeboat Spirit of Guernsey was called out on the evening of Friday 22nd May, 2015 to go to the assistance of a French yacht, the Kentan. The vessel had suffered engine failure and due to light winds and an adverse tide was unable to make way.

As there were no other vessels in the area able to offer assistance, the decision was made to send the lifeboat.

The Spirit of Guernsey was launched at 20:31, and was back on station at 22:06 local time.
