The crew of the inshore lifeboat  were tasked to join a search which also involved police and coastguard teams from Dunbar & North Berwick. They were searching for a woman who was described as vulnerable and there were fears for her safety.The ILB crew searched the harbour area, then west along the shoreline to Belhaven and onto the River Tyne before heading back to the harbour and commencing a search eastwards to Dunbar golf course. The search failed to find the woman in question and  the Coastguard stood down all teams and the ILB returned to the harbour.

Both of Eyemouth's RNLI lifeboats were called out to the Dunbar-based May Queen trawler which was moored in Eyemouth harbour & developed a severe list causing sea water to pour in on the rising tide and flood the vessel. The vessel was made safe and pollution booms put in place. At high tide, the vessel was towed upright and water removed from the trawler with two salvage pumps.
