Its interesting that if that had been 2 boats on here the MCGA press release would almost certainly have specifically criticised them for not putting out a VHF distress call... ...was there no criticism because it was another emergency service?

I would have thought that since the guiding principle is for only putting out a distress call when in 'grave and imminent' danger (mayday) or requiring assistance (panpan) such action wouldn't have been required, seeing as the 2nd rib was there on the scene to rescue them all. Why would they also need the RNLI?

First RIB capsized so they would be a good chance the second may. Better safe than sorry.

Erin - I was playing devils advocate - yes I assume the Fire Brigage believed they had the situation was under control. However had that been two boats from the sailing club, or a training school there would have been some comment made about "an early call to the coastguard enables us to prepare and deploy resources".
