Hope Cove lifeboat crew were called into action on Tuesday September 13.

Just after half past one Falmouth Coastguard reported a sailing dinghy repeatedly capsizing off Challaborough.

They arrived at the scene and with the help of Challaborough lifeguards, were directed towards the casualty vessel a mile offshore.

The casualty was recovered on board the lifeboat and towed the dinghy back to Burgh Island.

Hope Cove lifeboat offered this advice when on water- always check the conditions and ensure the vessel is suitable and the crew are capable, check the tides, check the wind strength, check the wind direction, take a means of calling for help and know your limits.
