2017 Launches West Mersea Lifeboat

Two people reported in the water off Stone

We launched in a hurry on Friday 28th April to two people reported in the water off Stone near the village of St Lawrence on the south side of the Blackwater. The two people had fallen into the water from a yacht’s tender. Whilst transferring from yacht to tender the tender capsized and the two sailors found themselves in the sea.   Luckily a neighbouring yacht came to their assistance along with the Stone Sailing Club rescue boat who carried the thoroughly soaked casualties ashore before we arrived.  Our lifeboat, Just George, attended the incident but as all was in hand we stood down and went back to the station.
