The lifeboat was returning to base this afternoon having attended the blessing of the boats in Rush when they were tasked to reports of two swimmers in difficulty off the captains. The lifeboat was on scene within minutes and located the two swimmers who had been caught by a strong current and were struggling to make it ashore. The two swimmers were tired from their efforts but were otherwise ok and were landed at the captains where their friends were waiting for them.
