Gosport lifeboat tows 31ft catamaran to safety
Gosport independent lifeboat was called to assist a stricken 31ft catamaran in The Solent on Thursday evening.
UK Coastguard requested Gosport & Fareham Inshore Rescue Services lifeboat, the Joan Dora Fuller, take over a tow of a casualty vessel from Bembridge Lifeboat after it had got into difficulties off Ventor, Isle of Wight, at around 1930.
GAFIRS rendezvoused with the RNLI launch at 2200 at No Mans Land Fort and took over the tow of the catamaran, which had only the skipper on board.
The craft had left Dartmouth earlier that day and got into difficulties when its engine failed and a lack of wind left it dead in the water. 
GAFIRS coxswain Brian Pack said: We placed a crewman on board the casualty vessel and rigged a tow line. The catamaran was tricky to tow, though, as it had a problem with its steerage.
It took around an hour to tow the vessel to Gosport Marina where she was safely brought alongside with the help of Hillhead Coastguard Rescue Team.
