Shout During Flag Weekend.
While our crew were busy down at the bandstand helping out at the flag weekend the pagers went off for a real rescue.
The all-weather lifeboat was launched to a small pleasure boat which had steering failure near Runswick Bay.
Staithes lifeboat which had just arrived in the harbour for this afternoon's display also attended the call out.
The boat was towed safely back to Whitby harbour with four people on board by the Staithes lifeboat while Whitby Lifeboat stood by.
The RN...LI's volunteer crews are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are always prepared to assist anyone in trouble in the water.
Thank you for all your support this weekend.
