- “The boat set out on February 13, 1989 at 4pm to reports a Spanish fishing vessel had run aground at Lough Swilly in Donegal. The wind speed indicator at the top of the mast was screaming at 113.5mph from the north, straight onto the shore. As one mountainous wave after another surged past the harbour mouth, the Coxswain saw his chance - looking for a trough we could get ourselves into - and slammed the throttles forward, almost a thousand horsepower. Seconds later, the wave caught us and we were driven onto our side, surfing down a wall of white water towards the trough. On a lesser boat we would have perished, but the stability of the Richard Evans, an Arun Class Lifeboat, saved the day and we turned to face the next big one.”
