|Location of Casualty||Lyme Bay area|
Launched to assist an 8.5m yacht with two crew on board, one suffering from sea sickness and causing concern. Vessel was 10/12 miles out in Lyme Bay in a Force 6.
Two ALB crew members were transferred on board the yacht, including a Doctor, to assess the situation.
Sea conditions prevented a transfer to the ALB, so Crew remained on board and sailed the yacht back to Torquay harbour with the ALB in attendance.
