Rescue on Tuesday 8th July
« on: July 17, 2003, 09:43:33 AM »
On behalf of Veronique, the rescued crew member of our yacht, Hecla II, and the rest of us, I would like to thank the lifeboat crew for their very timely and helpful stretcher carry down the path to the head of Loch Nevis. It turned out that the girl you took to Mallaig had, in fact, broken her tibia and fibula. From Mallaig she was taken to Ft William, and from there, believe it or not, helicoptered to Ninewells in Dundee, near where she lives. I know that she is extremely grateful, and as for the rest of us, a tiring carry was enlivened by your good cheery conversation. I am also certain that there will be a donation going to the RNLI. Best wishes and take care at sea, Ken Crocket
