Comments: Thank you so much to the crew who came out to assist us last Tuesday 24th July in Blue Anchor Bay.Our boatis called FATS (incorrectly posted as CATS) she is a 33ft freedom rig. We suffered engine failure that turned out to be deidel fuel bug.The anchor windlas failed as designed to raise the anchor and chain but not to pull the boat forward against a rising tide and a good blow.Once we had the anchor up we were able to sail back to Burnham running before the westerly wind.Friends met us and took us along side to get on to the pontoon at our club. Thank you once again for being their at our hour of need it was very reassuring.

Comments: Well done to you all at Minehead for carrying on a great tradition ad hardwork in looking after this part of the Somerset coast. For a few years i lived with my family at nearby Dunster. When i visit my family in Devon we always try an excursion to Minehead, meanwhile i do what i can by giving presentations and raising cash for the Service in very inland Cambridge. Good Luck.
