The St Peter Port Lifeboat was called out Sunday 7th August 2016 to go to the assistance of a 23 foot motor cruiser with four persons on board. The “Vital Spark” had suffered engine failure approximately 3.5 miles S.E. of St Martins Point. As there were no other vessels in the area able to offer assistance, the “Spirit of Guernsey” was tasked to assist.
The Lifeboat left St Peter Port at 20:30 and was alongside the casualty at 20:49. A tow was established and the Spirit of Guernsey arrived back at St Peter Port with the casualty at 21:40.
