Rescuing the rescuers!

It was East Haven to the rescue last week when Dundee Sailing Club needed help to recover their safety boat from the rough sea in East Haven. The boat was pulled ashore by our part time fisherman Craig Lyall with the tractor and left on the dunes overnight until the wind settled. Members of Carnoustie and Dundee sailing club arrived in a small flotilla of boats for a barbecue in East Haven but were caught out by the strong easterly winds. It's not the first time that East Haven fishermen have had to rescue boats as conditions can change very quickly in the area. Maybe we should put in a bid for our own life boat station!
