EPIRB distress signal

The St Peter Port Lifeboat was tasked to search an area South of St Martins Point during the evening of Sunday 14th October 2018 after an EPIRB distress signal was received indicating a vessel in distress in that area.  The Spirit of Guernsey was launched at 17:11 and searched the area with assistance from the local fishing vessel “Sarah P”.  With nothing being found, both vessels were stood down.

The Spirit of Guernsey was back on station at 17:20.
