Jubilee Holiday week kicks off with three calls in three days for Salcombe RNLI's volunteer lifeboat crews.

On Saturday, 28 May, the ALB, Baltic Exchange III was tasked to assist a 9m RIB suffering engine/battery problems approximately 1nm north of Start Point, with two adults and a child on board.

Whilst on route to the casualty vessel the lifeboat crew received information from the Coastguard confirming the casualty had regained power and was now heading for Dartmouth. The lifeboat stood down and was returned to the station.

On Monday, 30 May, the ALB launched to assist a 32ft Contessa with engine failure 2nm southeast of Prawle Point. Once on scene it was decided that, with little chance of regaining power the casualty should be taken under tow and brought to the safety of Salcombe Harbour.

As the vessels entered Salcombe Harbour the Coastguard requested that the lifeboat respond to a PanPan call [urgent but not life-threatening] coming from a vessel in difficulty southeast of Start Point, with mechanical failure.

Again, the casualty vessel was assisted back into the safety of Salcombe Harbour.

In an emergency dial 999/112 and ask for the Coastguard.
