The team were tasked by the NMOC to make safe Dorchester HLS for R175 from Lee on Silent. Two male casualties had been recovered from the water in Weymouth Bay after the small fishing boat they were in capsized. They had been in the water for some 2 hours before a passong yacht saw them and raised tge alarm. Both casualties were in shock so information gathered was sketchy. One was wearing a life jacket, the other did not have time to put his on but managed to cling to a fuel tank sustaining chemical burns during his ordeal. Both Weymouth Lifeboat s launched and recovered the pair from the water before R175 airlifted them to hospital.
