At 11:58 Falmouth Coastguard requested the launch of Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat to assist a sports boat that had reported being broken down off Loe Beach in the Carrick Roads.

The Inshore Lifeboat launched from her slipway at 12:04 and was passing Trefusis Point when at 12:06 the Coastguard advised that the boat had managed to restart its engine and assistance was no longer required. The Inshore Lifeboat was therefore released to return to its station.

The Inshore Lifeboat was recovered onto its slipway at 12:12 where the lifeboat was refuelled and made ready for service by 12:20.
