This afternoon in Portpatrick we had the the Air sea rescue Demonstrations by Portpatrick Lifeboat, Stranraer Lifeboat, Search and rescue Helicopter and The Coastguard.

This is the first year the Portpatrick Lifeboat, the John Buchanan Barr, has taken part in this demonstration as last year it was involved and called out to a real life rescue instead. This year the SAR Helicopter could not make it as they too were called out to a real live rescue.

All in all it was a very impressive demonstration from all involved.
