My US visitors Lori and Jack Phillips had barely time to finish their lunch when I was called out by the Two Rocks Marine Rescue Group to help with a rescue 15nautical miles off the coast. A boat had engine problems and needed assistance to get back to the marina at Two Rocks. Lori and Jack were happy to come along for the ride and observe just how we operate a rescue.
