Launch to assist coastguard

Launch No: 140
Thursday, 16 February 2012
Location: Pudcombe Cove. Start Bay

The crew were assembled following a call from Brixham Coastguard. A lifejacket had been found on the coastal path at Colaton Fishacre. A further piece of lifejacket was reported to be on the rocks in Pudcombe Cove. It was retrieved and a shoreline search was conducted back to the crabber's quay at Kingswear where it was handed to the mobile coastguard team on the shore. It was in good condition and was probably a commercial seaman's jacket.
