Tasked by Humber Coastguard to assist a 17 metre Scalloper fishing vessel who had a sick crew member on board. Their position was approximately 7.4 nautical miles North east of Ravenscar. The Coastguard rescue helicopter had also been tasked along with Whitby Lifeboat who was escorting the casualty. When on scene tthe Coastguard helicopter winched their paramedic on to the casualty vessel. It was decided that the vessel should make for Scarborough harbour as this was the nearest with the casualty remaining on board together with the paramedic. Whitby lifeboat stayed with the casuaty vessel until it passed Hayburn Wyke and then it returned to station. As the casualty was approaching Scarborough our ILB was launched as due to tidal conditions it may not have been possible for the scalloper to enter the harbour so the casualty would have had to be transferred to the ILB. Fortunately the Scalloper was able to enter the harbour so the ILB was stood down and returned to station.
