Loch Ness RNLI on exercise with Portpatrick Relief
Last week we spent some time with a crew from Portpatrick Lifeboat, who were on passage back to their lifeboat station via the Caledonian Canal with relief ALB 16-10 Our crew were able to take the Tamar class lifeboat in both a stern and an alongside tow - hugely valuable for the crew here at Loch Ness. Being landlocked, we have no flanking station and so rarely have the opportunity to exercise with other lifeboats. A big thank you to Portpatrick for being so accommodating!
