A small motor launch with 2 persons on board sank suddenly on Sunday 11th Novemeber at approximately 1240. The vessel position was 241degrees Fleetwood Tower Range 2.3 nm.
A nearby vessel the ‘Pisces’ spotted this and reported to HMCG Holyhead; Fleetwood confirmed this by telephone to HMCG. Pisces very quickly reached the 2 people and got them on board. The 2 people were subsequently transferred to the Fleetwood Lifeboat for return to shore.
The Pisces crew and one of the rescued persons later visited the tower to thank all concerned.
