RNLI rescue at Castle Archdale as speedboat goes adrift

ENNISKILLEN RNLI came to the aid of four people after a speedboat went adrift due to engine problems in shallow water off Castle Archdale recently.

Following a request from Belfast Coastguard, the volunteer crew launched the station lifeboat John and Jean Lewis to go to the aid of a 16ft speedboat that had encountered engine difficulties and was adrift in a shallow area of Lower Lough Erne.

Although weather conditions on the day were described as “choppy”, the crew quickly found the drifting boat on the western side of Crevinishaghy Island.
