Kinghorn RNLI Firth of Forth
Kinghorn RNLI crew called into action early on Sunday morning.

Kinghorn RNLI crew were called into action early on Sunday morning following reports of a small boat drifting in the Firth of Forth.

The volunteer team were scrambled at 7.25am on Sunday, May 16 to search for a boat drifting off Fisherrow Harbour in East Lothian.

With the help of Fisherrow Coastguard and North Berwick Coastguard Rescue Team, the Kinghorn crew were directed to the vessel which was found to be a small yacht tender from the nearby harbour.

The vessel was safely returned to Fisherrow Harbour.

With no signs there had been anyone on board, the crew managed to secure the vessel  before returning it back to the tender park.

The emergency ‘shout’ is the 21st call to action for the Kinghorn RNLI crew in 2021.
