On Sunday 7th August at 5:30pm Hunstanton Lifeboat “Spirit of West Norfolk” launched a service and proceeded to Brancaster. On arrival, the two women crew were hanging on to their upturned dinghy, a 4 meter. angling boat, which had capsized in the surf on the sands, while they were fishing.
With the offshore wind, and ebbing tide they were drifting offshore and in a state of exhaustion. They were taken on to the lifeboat and landed into the care of the Local Coastguard response team, along with their dinghy in Brancaster Harbour
