Inshore lifeboat launched at 1602 to the aid of a small tender with two occupants, whose outboard had failed whilst returning to the shore from their yacht moored in the River Medway. The ILB was on scene at 1628 and after taking the occupants onboard the ILB, towed their tender back to shore, being suitably dressed for being afloat, no medical assistance was required. The ILB returned to station at 1714. NW 4/5, but squalls of snow, sleet and hail.
