River Blackwater/Crouch: Coastguards kept busy this weekend

First published in News

Coastguards were kept busy after a boat broke down and another sank yesterday.


Wallasea Island’s Essex Marina called the Thames Coastguard for help after a 35ft motor boat, Boudicca, broke down off Burnham in the River Crouch shortly before 9am.
 

The boot was towed to Essex Marina by the police marine unit.
 

Three hours later, South Woodham Ferrers Coastguard was sent out following reports of a sinking yacht off St Lawrence Bay.
 

The coastguard was able to confirm the yacht had sunk on its moorings and the owner, who was aware of the situation, was making arrangments to recover the boat.

Nothing like putting the boot in over a simple typo, but each to their own, whatever floats your boot.
