Skipper ran vessel aground Five men were rescued – and one arrested

Looks like the boat is aground on the west bank - not the Tiger's Tail notorious shifting bank that has caught out so many over the years.

Skipper runs his vessel aground, five men were rescued – and one arrested – after the Corentine ran aground near Fleetwood Docks in the early hours of June 7, 2016. The Corentine got stuck on a sandbank known locally as Tiger’s Tail on its way out of the docks and, although it was leaning to port, there was no real danger of overturning. 

RNLI volunteers launched from the town’s lifeboat station at around 2.20 a.m., collecting the men and returning to shore. Police arrested the skipper, a 45-year-old man from York, on suspicion of being drunk in charge at the helm, being over the prescribed limit of alcohol. Due to the concern about the fuel, the RNLI crew made sure the crew switched all the valves off. The volunteers remained on standby to refloat the stricken ship at high tide, as long as a new skipper can be found. The skipper remained in custody, and was due to be questioned by officers.
