The Sheringham Lifeboat was launched on Saturday 14th September at 11.44 hrs at the request of Humber Coastguard to search the inshore waters between East Runton and Cromer where a member of the public had sighted a Red Flare thought to be in the near-shore zone.
Cromer offshore and inshore lifeboats were also searching the local waters and HM Coastguard teams were tasked to search the foreshore area.There was a big sea running with northerly winds generating two metre swells and the flood tide just beginning to come through. The lifeboats & coastguard units did a thorough search of the area and nothing was found. The Coastguard stood the Lifeboats down at 12.30hrs and Sheringham L/B returned to station.
Following an interesting recovery with two metre swells running in, the Lifeboat was rehoused and ready for service at 13.15hrs
Launched with good intent
