While the crew were still on station Solent Coastguard called the Lifeboat Operations Manager to ask if the D Class could launch to speak to a yacht that had called in to say that had run aground in Langstone Harbour and then had lost comms. Portsmouth’s D Class made way to the scene to find that the vessel was free however the engine was not starting so the D Class took them under tow and towed them to the Hayling Island Ferry Pontoon.
