The female casualty, who became injured while working on the vessel, required a medevac while 30 miles off Ballycotton Bay.
Ballycotton RNLI and its volunteer crew were launched on request by Valentia Coast Guard and proceeded to the incident.
The Pont-Aven altered its course back towards Cork Harbour and was met by Ballycotton RNLI some 16 miles out. The casualty was transferred to Ballycotton’s all-weather lifeboat and brought to Crosshaven where the ambulance service was waiting to assist.
Weather conditions were favourable, and near perfect for the task which enabled all involved to transfer the casualty quickly and seamlessly.
Speaking following the callout, Ballycotton RNLI coxswain Eolan Walsh said: “The timeliness and transfer of the casualty was made so much simpler by the professionalism of the Pont-Aven’s fast rescue boat crew.
“We would like to thank all involved that contributed to a positive outcome and we wish the casualty a speedy recover from all at Ballycotton RNLI.”
