The Coastguard tasked the Dart RNLI Inshore lifeboat to respond to a Mayday call from an 18 ft. motor cruiser, the Lizzy Jane with one adult on board. The boat had broken down with engine failure. She was taken in tow and towed back to the public slip in Dartmouth. The lifeboat crew then proceeded with their regular Tuesday evening training session. They were about to launch when the call was received.
