Damaged vessel takes on water near Hastings

Hastings Coastguard team, joined by counterparts from Bexhill and Rye Bay, along with the Coastguard Rescue helicopter, responded to a distressed vessel that had run aground, sustaining damage and taking on water.

Pett Level Rescue Boat also was tasked by the coastguard successfully evacuating the casualties and initiating a tow of the vessel.

Unfortunately, the vessel capsized due to the excessive water intake.

Thankfully, with the timely aid of a passing vessel, the casualty vessel was righted, and both the casualties and the vessel were safely brought back to Rock-o-Nore beach.

Once the casualty vessel was securely ashore, we were relieved of duty and returned to our station.
