Concern Over Drifting Dinghy

coastguard station st martinsThe St Mary’s lifeboat volunteers were called out to help rescue passengers in a two-man dinghy to the south of St Martin’s last night.

A concerned member of the public called Falmouth Coastguard around 9pm, after seeing a dinghy drifting between Tresco and St Martin’s. The lifeboat crew were paged.

The Coastguard on St Martin’s were mobilised too but they observed the vessel and its passengers make their way to the Old Quay safely.

The lifeboat wasn’t launched in the end.
