Double call-out for Eastbourne lifeboat

Eastbourne lifeboat was called out twice on Tuesday to rescue two yachts that had suffered engine failure.

The first call for the all-weather lifeboat was to the 32ft ketch Lazy Days which had suffered a recurrence of the engine failure which prompted a call-out for the ALB on Sunday afternoon.

As the lifeboat was approaching harbour with the boat under tow the crew received another request for assistance from another yacht with engine failure on the approaches to Sovereign Harbour.
