The crew arrived on-scene 13 minutes after the pagers sounded.
The sailors were safely transported back to shore. Read the full story in the June 2019 issue of the Alness & District Times - issue no. 324.
This charity started off when Sir William Hillary made an impassioned appeal to the nation, calling for a service dedicated to saving lives at sea.
That service was to become the RNLI. And since their foundation in 1824, the brave lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 140,000 lives.
