19th June 2019 - 15:01
The full team was paged at 15:01 and asked to assist Portland Bill CRT with an injured climber at the base of the cliffs at Freshwater Beach, Portland.

The team assembled and made their way to the casualty location, where they rendezvoused with Portland Bill CRT. Portland Bill CRT has arrived shortly before Wyke and had made contact with the first informant, who led the CRO to the casualty. The casualty had slipped and twisted their knee at the base of the cliff, incapacitating them. Although a minor injury, due to their position extraction by stretcher up the steep cliff paths was deemed too risky.

Portland OIC informed the NMOC the safest option was to extract the casualty by sea, as the sea state was exceptionally calm, making access relatively easy. The NMOC then duly tasked Weymouth Lifeboat ILB. The casualty was then placed on the coastguard stretcher and conveyed to the shoreline awaiting the arrival of the ILB. Upon arrival at scene, Weymouth Lifeboat ILB passed their stretcher and a life jacket for the casualty. The casualty was then secured to the Lifeboat stretcher and transferred to the awaiting ILB.

The ILB then readied the casualty for the journey and proceeded back to Weymouth, where they would be met by the casualties group who arranged transportation to hospital.

With the casualty safely aboard the ILB, both teams were allowed to stand down.

13th June 2019 - 15:20
The full team were paged at 15:20 to reports of a capsized sailing dinghy near to Bran Point, Osmington.

The first informant had been watching two dinghy sailing in the area when they witnessed one capsize. They reported a RIB local to the dinghy assisting the occupants, and leaving the area, but had not seen the vessel recovered, raising the alarm.

The team made their way to the Smugglers carpark and made contact with the first informant. The first informant advised the position of the dinghy, and the location of which the RIB had travelled after assistance. The officers then contacted Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy to ascertain if they had anyone in the area at the time the report came through.

The academy made enquiries and it was quickly established the dinghies and occupants were part of their activities. They had been practicing down wind, intending to tow back to their base due to the strong winds and rough conditions. They confirmed both dinghy and occupants were safely aboard and on tow by the RIB, making their way back to base as planned.

The information was then passed to the NMOC who stood the team down with thanks.
