A Cygnus 25 fishing boat with 3 on board developed engine failure in Leonards Cove and was drifting towards rocks, in spite of attempting to anchor. One of the crew went overboard to swim the boat off the rocks. They radioed for help and the Coastguard tasked the lifeboat to assist. They were towed back to their mooring at Warfleet creek.
