Jersey Ski Boat in 2nd incident

Tuesday 16th September 2014

The St Peter Port lifeboat was called into service twice more this evening. The first was for the medivac of a patient from Herm to Guernsey at 16:50 and the second to search for a broken down ski-boat between Guernsey and Jersey.

The 5.5 metre jersey registered ski-boat was found by the Daniel L Gibson at 18:37 and established a tow. The lifeboat then proceeded towards Jersey where the St Helier Lifeboat took over the tow and proceeded to Jersey with the two crew members on board.

The Daniel L Gibson left the scene at 19:07 and was back on station at 20:05.

NB: This was the second incident involving this vessel after it had to be rescued off the East coast of Sark on Friday evening
