Capsized Pico!

Most of the crew were back up at sandpit field for another lemonade when the pagers went off for the second shout of the day. At 18:56 Portland Coastguard requested the launch of Swanage's Inshore Lifeboat to go to the assistance of a small sailing dinghy in difficulties 200 yards off Swanage Pier with people in the water. The lifeboat launched and was quickly on scene. The young lad that had been in the water was taken back to the boathouse, wrapped in blankets and warmed up. The Lifeboat then went back out to help recover the boat and towed it back to the boat park.
