All CRBI units are subject to regular review and audit in terms of their operational readiness. This process is still on-going in relation to the unit in question and the outcome will be informed by the wider follow-up to the MCIB report and recommendations in relation to boat operations.

In the meantime, I understand that the Tramore unit of the RNLI are providing the in-shore rescue service for the Tramore area.
