Burnham-On-Sea lifeboat called to capsized catamaran

The capsized catamaranBurnham-On-Sea's Atlantic 75 lifeboat, The Staines Whitfield, was called out at 1.05pm on Monday (July 3rd) to help a catamaran that had capsized in Bridgwater Bay to the west of the town's jetty.

The lifeboat quickly made its way from the RNLI station to the beach in readiness to launch.

However, on arrival, the crew found the catamaran (pictured) had managed to self-right itself and no longer required help, with the two sailors onboard enjoying some exciting sailing in the stiff on-shore breeze.
