#RNLI - Ramsey RNLI on the Isle of Man launched its all-weather lifeboat Ann & James Ritchie yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 23 May) to render assistance to a day angling vessel with three people on board.

The 21ft vessel had broken down seven miles south-west of Burrow Head in the Irish Sea. In fair weather conditions and a slight sea, the Ramsey lifeboat with acting coxswain Ali Clague at the helm located the stricken vessel at 1.20pm, 70 minutes after launch.

A tow was safely established, and it was advised by Belfast Coastguard that the lifeboat should bring the vessel towards Donaghadee on the Ards Peninsula.

Donaghadee’s all-weather lifeboat Saxon was tasked to rendezvous with the Ramsey crew and the two lifeboats met approximately one mile to the west of Mull of Galloway lighthouse at 3.25pm where the tow was passed.
