Jersey Lifeboat rescue of French yacht at Les Ecrehous

View all 9 photos...

RNLI report on the link above:

I woke up to see the lifeboats off Marmotier and a French yacht that I had guided to safety the previous day high and dry on the rocks, at first I feared the worst but a call to Jersey Radio informed me that all had been rescued and were safe and sound.

When daylight came the crew returned on the rising tide and took the vessel off.

The vessel had not moored correctly to the mooring only picking the small buoy line and not the main rope which had been tangled by a previous visitor!

Gorey to Carteret rowing race

Channel TV report on the race:

Four lifeboats called to rowing race
Four lifeboats were launched when boats taking part in the Gorey to Carteret race started capsizing.

The St Catherine’s Lifeboat crew were paged at 10.43 following reports that two rowing boats had turned over off St Catherine’s breakwater. Guard boats were having difficulties in towing the boats.

There were also worries for the rest of the rowing fleet who were encountering 4ft seas in force 4 to 5 winds. As a result the St Catherine lifeboat was launched along with the St Helier all-weather and inshore lifeboats.

Further rowing boats capsized. Some were able to carry on, but others had to abandon the race. The Carteret lifeboat joined the fleet near the Ecrehous.

As the fleet neared Carteret the conditions worsened and the wave height increased to about six feet with winds of force five. More boats capsized and the St Catherine’s lifeboat responded to a number of requests for assistance. One guard boat also needed help when a rope tangled its propellors.
