Medivac of injured male
HM Coastguard requested the help of the Teignmouth lifeboat to transfer an injured male from Sprey Point to the lifeboat station. The casualty had fallen approx 20ft from the seawall onto the beach - the ambulance was unable to reach the incident, but the paramedics were able to walk along the seawall and beach and assess the injured man. The decision was taken to transfer the casualty on a stretcher to the lifeboat station via the lifeboat where access to an ambulance was straightforward.

Successful search by the Teignmouth Arancia lifeboat
An 80 year old man reported 'missing' by his carer resulted in both Teignmouth lifeboats searching the coastline and River Teign bank side. Approx 20 minutes into the search the Arancia lifeboat located the gentleman on the river edge. The gentleman was recovered into the lifeboat and taken to the lifeboat station, where a hot drink was provided - a policeman then took the gentleman back to his home.


This service by the smaller lifeboat (the Arancia A-67 'Malcolm Hawkesford 1) highlights the value of having two lifeboats at Teignmouth - the Arancia was able to search the very shallow river side, where the Atlantic 85 would not have been able to venture because of her greater draught.

Concern at possible occupants of small yacht stuck under Shaldon Bridge
Following a request from Brixham Coastguard, the Teignmouth Atlantic 85 lifeboat (The Two Annes) was launched to investigate a 22ft yacht stuck under the Shaldon to Teignmouth road bridge. It appears that the yacht had come loose from its mooring during the very high spring tide - no one was found on board and there was no sign of recent on board activity. The yacht was towed to Polly Steps and moored to a vacant mooring with the boat owner being requested to move it as soon as possible.

Missing Diver Concern
The Teignmouth lifeboat - The Two Annes - was launched at the request of Brixham Coastguard to a report of a vessel in Ansteys Cove where the occupant was trying to attract attention. The lifeboat with volunteer crew arrived at the reported incident area where nothing was found. After a brief search a vessel was located with one person on board near Black Head and he identified himself as the boat the lifeboat was searching for.
This person was engaged in diving for scallops and his colleague was missing - but a local vessel then reported over the radio that they had recovered a diver from the water in a tideway leading to Thatcher Rock.
The lifeboat recovered the missing diver from the local boat and returned him to his colleague moored near Black Head. It then transpired that the diver's boat engine would not restart, so the now casualty (divers) boat was towed to Torquay harbour

Walker suffers leg injury
Both Teignmouth lifeboats were launched to assist a walker with a leg injury on the towpath of the upper reaches to the River Teign. The Arancia lifeboat (Malcolm Hawkesford 1) was comfortably able to negotiate these shallow waters, whilst the Atlantic 85 (The Two Annes) remained in the deeper water relaying radio traffic to and from from HM Coastguard to the Arancia.
When the lifeboats arrived on scene paramedics were treating the lady, but they were unable to recover her to the ambulance because of the difficult terrain - the casualty was then put into the Arancia and floated up to Newton Abbot Town Quay where the ambulance had good access.

The lifeboat took the fishing boat and occupant in tow, returning them to Exmouth. At the request of HM Coastguard, the male occupant was guided on how to use the VHF in emergency communications.

Out-of-Control motor boat in the Harbour
A gentleman fell out of his small motor boat whilst leaning over the side to recover his mooring near Polly Steps - unfortunately the gentleman had unclipped the 'kill-cord' from himself and somehow managed to push the throttle lever to full power. The result was that the boat went into a spin on the water at full speed, and threw him into the water - fortunately the boat did not spin over him, but drifted down stream towards the dock area whilst still completing small circles.

The lifeboat with Giles Squirrel, James Cassidy and Adam Truhol on board, and with the assistance of the Teignmouth Tug managed to corral the runaway boat - the lifeboat crew managing to get a line aboard the spinning boat and getting close enough to it to be able to reach the throttle lever and reduce its speed.

The boat owner managed meanwhile to get ashore, and was taken by ambulance to hospital.
