At 12:35 on Friday 15 November 2019 The all-weather lifeboat (ALB), Spirit of Guernsey was launched by Guernsey Coastguard to go to the assistance of the French sailing vessel Telemaque 2 with two persons on board.

The vessel was approximately half a mile north east of Bec du Nez, Sark and had suffered a rudder failure.

The lifeboat was alongside Telemaque 2’ at 13:02 and successfully established a tow. Both vessels arrived back at St Peter Port at 13:35 where the tow was handed over to marina staff from Guernsey harbours.

The Spirit of Guernsey was back on station at 13:42.
