The lifeboat launched on service today at around 3.45 pm after a Pan Pan call for assistance to a powerless 16′ boat with 3 people on board and no means of progressing. The boat was being held only by a light anchor. When the lifeboat arrived on scene the casualty had been taken under tow by a passing vessel and was progressing into Coverack Harbour. The lifeboat stood by to ensure the safe passage of both boats into Coverack. The Lifeboat returned to station for re-housing at 4.45 pm.
