At 16:48 on Sunday 17th November 2019 The all-weather lifeboat (ALB), Spirit of Guernsey was launched by Guernsey Coastguard to go to the assistance of the Guernsey registered fishing vessel ‘Hayley B’ with four persons on board.
The vessel was approximately six nautical miles north of Platte Fougere lighthouse and had suffered complete engine failure.
The lifeboat was alongside ‘Hayley B’ at 17:28 and successfully established a tow. Both vessels arrived back at St Peter Port at 18:28 where the tow was handed over to marina staff from Guernsey harbours.
The Spirit of Guernsey was back on station at 18:49
