On exercise too, bit naughty that. My RNLI assesor is on Newbiggin as helm can see him getting some stick if he was on the boat.

Hope they are all ok, it says escaped serious injury and they got it righted.

Says they had an RNLI inspector onboard too...

lifeboating is a risky undertaking,but i am pretty sure that the crew new the correct drills,and lets face it they have the best equipment for the job in hand that money can buy and the training is for such an eventualtiy like this ,.we should be thankfull in this country that we have probely the best lifeboat service in the world,,,,lets face it the RNLI have been at it long enough...
