Crew pagers sounded at 15 30 to a request of an immediate launch of the all weather lifeboat Lester.

A report had been received of a 32 foot yacht - Summer Wind - having engine problems about 8 miles north of Cromer.
Two persons were on board the yacht which was headed for Hartlepool. Luckily the sea state was slight and the lifeboat was soon launched and on its way to give assistance.
Help was given by Cromer's crew and the yacht was soon able to resume its journey. Lester returned to its boathouse and was rehoused, cleaned down and made ready for its next call out by 18 00.

Boat Crew:  Ady Barker, John Davies, Alex Royall, Paul Watling, Pete Stokes, Wes Stokes
