Enniskillen (Carrybridge) Lifeboat & Rescue Water Craft goes to the aid of a 32 foot cruiser with 4 persons on board which had run aground.

Volunteer crew from Enniskillen Lifeboat Station based at Carrybridge were tasked at 2.44pm to a 32 foot cruiser with 4 people on board, which had run aground approx. ½ mile north of Naan Island. Carrybridge Lifeboat & Rescue Water Craft proceeded to the casualty vessel’s position. Once on scene, the vessel was checked for damage which none was found. It was then refloated by the Lifeboat with the assistance of the Rescue Water Craft, and the casualty vessel proceeded under its own power to Naan Island. Carrybridge Lifeboat & Rescue Water Craft then returned to station and was left ready for service.
