Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat was launched at 16:27 following reports of three people in the water from their kayaks. The Inshore Lifeboat arrived on scene at 16:40 and found that the casualties had been recovered from the water and had been taken ashore. They were checked over by the lifeboat crew but no further medical assistance was required. The Inshore Lifeboat was then advised that one of the vessels that had been assisting with the rescue had fouled its propeller. The propeller could not be cleared so the Inshore Lifeboat towed the motorboat back to its mooring off the Prince of Wales Pier in Falmouth Inner Harbour where it was safely secured at 18:25, the inshore lifeboat being released to return to its station where it was moored up on its temporary pontoon berth at 18:35.
This was the last service carried out by the stations Atlantic 75 Inshore Lifeboat “Eve Pank” (B-756) before being replaced by the stations new Atlantic 85 Inshore Lifeboat.
