FISHING CREW SEARCH
A large-scale search is under way this evening (Thursday) for two fishermen after their boat capsized on Loch Fyne.
Lifeboats were called out after a distress signal was received from a fishing vessel in Loch Fyne around 6pm on Thursday.
The vessel's crew had rescued a man from the water north of Portavadie on Cowal’s south-west shore. The man told his rescuers that his own boat had capsized with two other men aboard.
Local reports say the Tarbert-based vessel appeared to sink bow first, with two men trapped in the stern of the vessel.
Tighnabruich, Arran and Cambeltown RNLI Lifeboats are on scene, alongside the HM Coastguard Prestwick helicopter and Coastguard rescue teams from Tarbert, Kames, Inveraray and Crinan.
Police Scotland and the Scottish Ambulance Service have also been called out, while several commercial vessels, including two CalMac ferries, are assisting with the search.
Royal Navy Divers are expected at the scene.
The man who was recovered from the water has been taken to hospital, where his condition is unknown.

Boxing Day Cycle

See below for details of our annual two-wheeled excursion on Boxing Day. Weather usually dictates that we cycle the Coast Road to Ballygally and back with groups formed from varying abilities, so all are welcome.

  • Leave the club at 11:00
  • Aim to return by 14:00
  • Soup and sandwiches
  • Roaring fire
  • Showers available
  • Bar open all day

Please note the cycle is not being run by CSBC and you are therefore responsible for your own safety

If you feel you can volunteer for anything such as safety boat driving (must be suitably qualified), marshalling, barbequing, dinghy launching or anything at all that can help with the running of the club, then please contact or pass on your details to John Lowry (johnalowry@hotmail.co.uk). John will be coordinating volunteers over the summer months and any assistance no matter how small or short is greatly appreciated by everyone at the club. Many thanks, John.
