Missing rock climber
At the request of HMCG the lifeboat 'The Two Annes' B809 was launched to investigate a report of a possible missing rock climber. A member of the public was concerned over finding a camera with no apparent owner close-by. It transpired that the launch and subsequent search was in vain but carried out with good intent.

Teignmouth lifeboat was requested to launch by HMCG to recover a dog swept out to sea near the Carey Arms Public House. It was feared that the dog's owners may try and enter the sea themselves to initiate a rescue attempt. On the lifeboat's arrival the dog was seen on the rocks on the cliff-side. One of the crew swam ashore and befriended the dog and attached a line allowing the crew in the boat to pull the dog to the lifeboat. The uninjured dog was then reunited with owners at Babbacombe Pier.
