Man rescued from Stranded Sailing Vessel

1 Mins read

In the early afternoon of Saturday 31st October, the Coleraine Coastguard Rescue Team and Portrush Inshore Lifeboat were tasked to the River Bann, following an urgent call for assistance from a large sailing vessel.

The craft had run aground on a sandbank with its skipper suffering a medical emergency. As the Coastguard stood by with mud rescue equipment, the ILB managed to come alongside the casualty vessel and evacuate the skipper to the safety of a nearby marina, where Coastguard personnel and NIAS paramedics were waiting.

The four remaining crew members of the vessel elected to remain aboard until the next tide.
