Burnham-on-Crouch RNLI assist a 41′ sailing boat with 4 persons onboard.

The sound of Burnham-on-Crouch RNLI volunteer pagers could be heard at 12.30pm on 22 July 2021 with a tasking from UK Coastguard to assist a 41′ sailing boat with 4 persons onboard that had grounded in the vicinity of the River Roach.

Whilst enroute, the rib from Essex Police Marine Unit that happened to be passing, went along side and took 2 people off the casualty vessel, with the other 2 remaining onboard.

Meanwhile the RNLI volunteers proceeded to the casualty in order to assess the sailing boat and layed out an anchor in case they were tasked to return later if the casualty failed to refloat on the high tide.
