PAGER 18:04 - We were tasked to a yacht that had sent out a mayday call near Bo'ness. The Lifeboat was launched and made best speed to the area where, after a short search, we located the casualty vessel. The yacht had suffered engine failure and so with a member of our crew having been put aboard she was taken under tow by the Lifeboat into Port Edgar. Queensferry Lifeboat then returned to station where the rest of the crew were taking part in our weekly Monday night training.
Shortly after returning to station and recovering the boat we received another launch request, and the boat was prepped for the new tasking, about to launch when we were stood down.
The crew had a late night at training and headed home from the station only to be woken by the pager going off again a few hours later:
PAGER 03:06 - RNLI Queensferry Lifeboat was tasked after reports of two red distress flares in the Cramond area. The Lifeboat searched from Hound Point to Granton Harbour and back, using white flares to aid visibility. With nothing found, and no more reports of distress flares or a vessel in difficulty the Lifeboat was stood down and returned to station around 5am, where the crew recovered the boat and made it ready for service, eventually heading home around 6am.
South Queensferry Coastguard were also in attendance at these call-outs.
A long day and night for the crew, leading straight into a normal busy weekday this morning despite the sleepless night, but as always we are ready to respond as soon as the pager sounds. #rnli#alwaysoncall#pager#searchandrescue#sarfamily#lifeboat#rnlifamily#wakeupcall#alwaysready#lifeboatcrew
