Following a planned exercise, the Arklow All-weather lifeboat Ger Tigchelarr and her volunteer crew of Eamonn Kavanagh, John Berminghham, Michael Fitzgerald, Jimmy Myler & Trevor Conroy, were returning to station when a distress call was received from the vessel which was approximately 1 mile South East of Arklow Harbour. The volunteer crew then proceeded to the location and it was established that the vessel had suffered sail damage and then mechanical failure. The vessel was taken on tow back to Arklow where all hands came ashore safely.

The vessel had suffered machinery failure and was adrift outside the mouth of Arklow Harbour. Lifeboat crew consisting of Coxswain Ned Dillon, Station Mechanic Michael Fitzgerald, John Bermingham, Scotty Heaney, Keith Forde & Eddie McElheron., proceeded to scene and after locating the casualty vessel, established a tow line and proceeded back in to Arklow with the vessel alongside.

The vessel had become entangled in fishing gear and was adrift approximately six miles south east of Arklow. The lifeboat crew proceeded to the scene and after locating the casualty vessel, established a tow line and proceeded back to Arklow with the vessel on tow. All crew members aboard the casualty remained aboard during the service and all hands came ashore safely.

It was reported that a member of the crew of eight had sustained an injury to the head and his condition had deteriorated. The lifeboat crew consisting of Coxswain Ned Dillon, Aiden Downey, Craig O?Reilly, Jimmy Myler, Eddie McElheron, David Lee and Geoff Kearnes launched Ger Tigchleaar into moderate seas and proceeded to the scene and located the sailing vessel approximately 12 miles north east of Arklow. On scene the casualty was transferred to Arklow RNLI's all-weather lifeboat and assessed by the crew where it was decided it would be best to transfer him to hospital immediately. The casualty was airlifted from the lifeboat by an Irish Coast Guard helicopter and flown directly to hospital. The sailing vessel continued on its passage to Arklow.

The volunteer crew who spent six hours at sea, was first requested to launch their all-weather lifeboat shortly before 4.30pm, following a report that a 23ft yacht was in difficulty somewhere near Arklow Bank. The lifeboat under Coxswain Ned Dillon and with six crew members onboard proceeded to the scene and commenced a search in an area east of the bank. The Irish Coast Guard helicopter Rescue 117 from Waterford was also tasked. Weather conditions at the time were favourable but there was a north east Force 5-6 wind blowing. The lifeboat located the sailing vessel which was travelling from Fishguard to Belfast when its crew of three encountered difficulties, one mile east of Arklow Bank. Having assessed the situation, Coxswain Ned Dillon decided to put a crew member onboard the vessel to assist with the rigging of a tow and to check if any medical assistance was required. After ensuring the occupants of the boat were able to continue the trip, a towline was established and the lifeboat began to tow the vessel safely into Arklow. As the lifeboat was completing the call, the crew was alerted once again and requested to go to the assistance of a 20ft yacht with two onboard which had got a rope tangled in its propeller. Once the crew of the first casualty vessel were safely brought to shore, the lifeboat immediately returned to sea and went to the sailors assistance. The lifeboat crew helped the sailors untangle the rope before towing the yacht into Arklow. As the lifeboat crew were assisting the yacht, a third call for help came, this time to assist a 13m yacht with three onboard that had got into difficulty off Cahore Point off the Wexford coast. As Arklow RNLI was already at sea, the nearby Rosslare Harbour lifeboat was requested to launch. The all-weather lifeboat from Rosslare under Coxswain Eamonn O?Rourke and with six crew onboard, set up a tow and commenced the passage towards Arklow. Once Arklow lifeboat had completed its second service of the evening, the crew returned to sea for a third time where they met the lifeboat from Rosslare. The tow was transferred and Arklow completed the tow back to the harbour.
