Arran RNLI’s volunteer crew had to rush to the rescue of the crew of a small dinghy which had capsized near Pillar Rock lighthouse on Holy Isle on Saturday.

At 12.35pm, the volunteer inshore lifeboat crew was called to the aid of a dinghy which had capsized leaving its crew in the water to the south of Holy Isle.

While at the Lamlash Splash, the crew overheard radio communications from the Fisheries Support Vessel MINNA who had spotted the overturned dinghy.

Once on scene the Arran RNLI volunteer crew worked with the crew from the FSV MINNA. After assessing the casualties it was decided that they would be brought back to Lamlash and an awaiting ambulance team. The RNLI crew later recovered the upturned dinghy.
