Hoylake & West Kirby Lifeboats were launched on 30th June to assist the yacht “Wisper” caught in bad weather in the River Dee. Suffering from sea sickness, West Kirby ILB transferred one crew member to the shore, where they were met by the Coastguard. Hoylake Lifeboat then put a lifeboat crew member on board the yacht to pass a tow, before proceeding to the safety of Mostyn Harbour. With the yacht secure on moorings, Hoylake Lifeboat returned to station.
