The RNLI Queensferry Lifeboat was launched on Sunday afternoon to go the aid of a heavily pregnant lady trapped on Cramond Island by the tide.

. The lady had only 13 days of her pregnancy to go and was safely picked up by the Llifeboat crew and landed at Cramond where she was met by relatives and friends who took her to hospital for a check-up. On the way back to Hound Point the crew noticed a yacht becalmed. The 14 feet sailing dinghy “Vagabond” was preparing to row back to Port Edgar against the tide and was pleased to accept a tow from the lifeboat crew, who safely returned him and his craft back to Port Edgar marina.
