Hastings ALB was requested to launch 1545 this afternoon to assist a broken down motor vessel in Rye Bay! 
The vessel which was on passage from Brighton to Dover suffered engine failure and despite the crew becoming increasingly sea sick they managed to safely anchor whilst awaiting assistance from the Lifeboat.
The ALB and her volunteer crew were quickly on scene and two crew members were transferred to the vessel. 
A tow was rigged soon after and the crew on board were given anti seasickness medications and water. 
The vessel was then towed safely into Rye Harbour where they were assisted by HM Coastguard Rye Bay Team
