Lifeboat launched to assist grounded fishing vessel

At 0135 this morning (Tuesday 23rd February 2021) Guernsey Coastguard received a MAYDAY call from a fishing vessel that had run aground on rocks around Tautenay Beacon.

The St Peter Port All Weather Lifeboat, Spirit of Guernsey, was launched to assist.

The fishing vessel re-floated without assistance and, on sounding around the vessel, the vessel’s Skipper confirmed that there was no ingress of water or damage to propulsion and steering.

The fishing vessel returned to St Peter Port under its own power with the Lifeboat escorting her as a precaution.

At 0245 both vessels safely arrived in St Peter Port.
