Padstow RNLI Lifeboat crew launched on 11 December 2021 to a broken down fishing vessel 3 miles north of Trevose Head.
Once on scene our Coxswain assessed the situation and made the decision that undertaking a tow was necessary and the safest way to assist. The vessel was taken safely into Padstow Harbour and the lifeboat returned to the station at 4pm.
Thanks to NCI Stepper Point for capturing this photo which shows the conditions very well!
