at Bass Point reporting a 13 year old male with a suspected back injury The Lizard lifeboat was launched along with a search and rescue helicopter from 771 Squadron RNAS Culdrose The Lizard lifeboat launched within 13 minutes of being paged and they were on scene within 5 minutes Their daughter Y boat was launched with two crew members on board The casualty was located in the water being

after The Lizard lifeboat and the coasteering team had taken part in a joint exercise to train for an incident like this The coasteering instructors had simulated this exact incident where a person had jumped into the sea landing awkwardly and hurting their back The lifeboat then practiced using their stretcher to lift the casualty from the water Mechanic second coxswain Dan Atkinson said This was a well organised group of coasteerers They did everything right and it was very good that we had only just recently practiced this type of incident and we have update training with them on a regular basis Again the emergency teams all worked very well together and we are just please the young lad is ok Notes to editors The shows the casualty being winched off The Lizard lifeboat with the

Point which had a flooded engine room The Barbados registered vessel Sea Breeze was on passage from Liverpool to Shoreham with a cargo of lime stone when it called Falmouth Coastguard reporting a flooded engine room approximately 11 miles south east of Lizard Point and requesting immediate assistance The Lizard lifeboat and Falmouth lifeboat were both launched and a Mayday relay was broadcast on VHF channel 16 requesting any vessel in the area to proceed to assist the Sea Breeze The Lizard lifeboat crew launched within 11 minutes of being paged and arrived on scene in less than 30 minutes Contact was made with the crew of the Sea Breeze and two volunteer crew of The Lizard lifeboat were put onboard the casualty vessel with an RNLI pump When the rescue helicopter from RNAS Culdrose arrived on scene they also placed a navy pump onboard the ship Shortly afterwards the Falmouth lifeboat arrived on scene and placed one volunteer crew member and their RNLI pump onboard The ships engine room was badly flooded and it was quickly evident that the pumps were unable to cope with ingress of water As the Sea Breeze was now lying low in the water it was considered too dangerous for the crew and RNLI volunteers to remain onboard The Falmouth lifeboat took off all the ship s crew and RNLI crew members The captain of the Sea Breeze was airlifted off the Falmouth lifeboat onto The Lizard lifeboat due to the sea swell but later transferred onto a naval vessel HMS Tyne that was on scene having responded to the Mayday call for assistance The Falmouth lifeboat then returned to Falmouth with five members of the ship s crew and the two Lizard lifeboat crew and all three pumps and later The Lizard lifeboat was stood down and returned to station A salvage tug Vortex from Falmouth has been on scene all afternoon and HMS Tyne has been standing by the Sea Breeze Falmouth Coastguard are currently dealing with the vessel and broadcasting safety messages to all shipping in the area making them aware of the situation The Lizard lifeboat Coxswain Andrew Putt said Conditions on scene were good Although there was a moderate swell we were able to get alongside the casualty very quickly and transfer a pump and two of our crew onboard Unfortunately there was alot of water in the engine room and the three pumps couldn t cope It was far too dangerous to leave the crew onboard This was a good team effort between both the lifeboats and the rescue helicopter Photos The attached photograph shows the Barbados registered ship Sea Breeze low in the water due to a flooded

2014 The Lizard RNLI lifeboat launches to search for a person washed into the sea The Lizard lifeboat has launched just after 1 30 this morning to a report of a person having been swept into the sea off the Lizard Peninsular Falmouth Coastguard tasked The Lizard lifeboat crew to search the sea off Loe Bar between Porthleven and Gunwalloe the Lizard after they had received a call reporting a person missing after a group of friends had entered the water for a paddle but one of the group had failed to return to the beach The Lizard lifeboat was launched along with the Penlee RNLI all weather lifeboat a search and rescue helicopter from 771 Squadron RNAS Culdrose and four Coastguard rescue teams The Lizard and Penlee lifeboats carried a number of searches offshore from the beach while the coastguard teams searched the along the beach and the helicopter over flew the whole area Conditions at the scene were very difficult as the sea was rough with a very big surf running in onto the beach This hampered the lifeboats ability to get close inshore After several hours of searching and with nothing found The Lizard and Penlee lifeboats were stood down with The Lizard returning to station just after 6am Coxswain Andrew Putt said The sea is very rough with a five metre swell which is causing a big surf to run in onto the beach as we currently have southerly gale force winds Due to the conditions we searched as close inshore as was possible along with the crew of the Penlee lifeboat There is no moonlight this morning and with the heavy squally showers visibility at times was very poor For further information regarding the details of the person involved in this incident please contact either Falmouth Coastguard or the Police at Helston The first

early afternoon and had been due back after a couple of hours but when he failed to turn up a friend phoned the Coastguard for assistance The Lizard all weather lifeboat was launched with a volunteer crew of seven to search from Black Head back toward Lizard Point Falmouth Coastguard also broadcast a Pan Pan call on VHF radio asking for any vessel in the area to assist in the search A local fishing vessel from Cadgwith Scorpio launched and started a search from Cadgwith toward Lizard Point and a Swedish survey vessel Triad transiting the area diverted to search from Black Head back toward Cadgwith The Triad spotted the reflective tape on the missing man s inflated lifejacket approximately half a mile off Lankidden and were able to lift him onboard before transferring him to the lifeboat where the crew carried out emergency casualty care until a SAR helicopter from RNAS Culdrose arrived on scene to fly the casualty to Treliske hospital Truro Coxswain Andrew Putt said We were very encouraged when the casualty was pulled from the water as he was breathing but we were informed earlier today that he had sadly passed away We would like to extend our sincere condolences to the man s wife family and friends We would also like to thank both the Scorpio and Triad for their help in the search The lifeboat crew were Coxswain Andrew Putt 2nd Mechanic Johnny Bray 3rd Mechanic

just as Rescue 193 was leaving and went on to recover the two empty life rafts out of the water and bought them back to station With no sign of the Panamera at this time it was clear that she had succumbed to the treacherous sea conditions and had already sunk Second Mechanic Johnny Bray said The sea conditions were poor and deteriating all the time we were grateful for the assistance of Rescue 193 in safely recovering the fishermen It was a difficult but necessary operation to recover the life rafts as they could have caused concern or hazards to other shipping in the area After five hours at sea in horrendous conditions the lifeboat returned to the station at Kilcobben Cove at 6am refuelled and was ready for service if required The Lizard lifeboat Rose was under the command of Coxswain Dan Atkinson Second Mechanic Johnny Bray and crew members Darren Thirlaway Nick Tattersall Nick Hampshire and Richard Woodmansey Shore crew for the service were Head Launcher Jeff Ashby Winchman David McBride Deputy Launcher Terry Thirlaway Sarah Legge Derek Chapman Jim Cave and John Cooper 30 September 2013 The Lizard RNLI lifeboat launches to a report of an abandoned 10 metre yacht

2013 The Lizard RNLI lifeboat launches to a 25 metre commercial Scalloping vessel on fire The Lizard lifeboat was launched for the third time in three days on Friday afternoon this time to a 25 metre commercial scalloping vessel that had suffered an engine fire approximately 2 miles south of Lizard Point The lifeboat was launched with a crew of seven just after 4pm on Friday afternoon by Falmouth Coastguard after the fishing vessel Vanquish with five people onboard had broadcast a Pan Pan message reporting an engine fire two miles south of Lizard Point The sea conditions on scene were calm and the lifeboat very quickly located the fishing vessel The vessels crew had shut all the hatches and isolated the boats fuel and believed the fire was now extinguished Two members of the lifeboat crew were placed onboard the Vanquish with a pump to assist with boundary cooling around the outside of the engine room and to provide assistance in setting up a towline The Vanquish was then towed to Newlyn arriving just before 8pm The lifeboat and fishing vessel then spent a couple of hours standing off the harbour entrance unable to enter as the vessel had its beams lowered and without the use of its hydraulics was unable to raise them to get through the harbour entrance After much deliberation it was decided that the vessel would have to remain outside of the harbour The Penlee RNLI Lifeboat was launched at around 9 30pm to take over the tow from The Lizard lifeboat and take the Vanquish to a safe anchorage until the owners of the vessel are able to arrange recovery The crew remained aboard the scalloper until they were able to move the vessel alongside the quay in Newlyn to effect repairs The Lizard lifeboat returned to station just after 11pm The photo shows the Vanquish being towed by The Lizard lifeboat Credit Tamsin Thomas 29 August 2013 The Lizard RNLI lifeboat launches to a 20 metre commercial fishing vessel aground on rocks The Lizard lifeboat was
