Yacht in distress
HM Coastguard requested the launch of the Teignmouth lifeboat following a report that a 28ft yacht was very close to the Ness with apparent steerage difficulties. The sea was very rough and the lifeboat took the yacht in tow and called for the Exmouth ALB to assist. Exmouth ALB was also unable because of the sea and wind conditions to tow the casualty yacht into either Exmouth or Teignmouth and the yacht was taken towards Torbay. The yacht owner was brought into Teignmouth aboard the lifeboat and accompanied to the railway station to be re-united with his vessel in Torbay...

Dog recovered
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.
