Assistance of “Manta”

The St Peter Port Lifeboat was launched at 08:25 on Saturday 5th January 2019 to go to the assistance of a local vessel the “Manta” with 2 people on board,   The vessel had fouled its propeller on passage to Jersey on discarded fishing gear and had lost all propulsion.  As no other vessels were in the area and able to assist, the lifeboat was tasked to tow “Manta” back to St Peter Port.

The lifeboat was alongside the casualty which was 6 miles South of St Martins Point, and established a tow at 08:52, and returned to St Peter Port at 09:47.

The Spirit of Guernsey was back on station at 09:53.
