2 Rescued by ‘Pisces’ after Vessel Sinks off Rossall Point

A small motor launch with 2 persons on board sank suddenly on Sunday 11th Novemeber at approximately 1240.  The vessel position was 241degrees Rossall Point Tower Range 2.3 nm.

A nearby vessel the ‘Pisces’ spotted this and reported to HMCG Holyhead; Rossall Point 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.
