Launch Information - 08/03/2018


Fishing vessel IRENE D II, 1 person and craft brought in.


Cromer RNLI was asked to launch its inshore lifeboat at 7 30 am. A request had come in from the Irene D a local fishing boat, which had engine problems.

Once the crew had been paged, the George and Muriel, Cromer’s d class inshore lifeboat was launched. The crew were soon on scene just off East Runton; assistance was given to the fishermen.

By 08 30am the inshore lifeboat had returned to its station, was washed down refuelled and made ready for its next launch.

It was a significant occasion for RNLI Cromer as the inshore lifeboat had returned on Tuesday 06 March after its maintenance checks; it was the first outing for the new tractor and also for Reis Khalil – who had recently finished his training to be a volunteer for Cromer RNLI.
