Peterhead Lifeboat Station wins the RNLI 2009 Filmmaker of the Year award.

Dramatic See Rescue Video wins Award.

On August 28th 2009, the 37ft Yacht "Havbris" took damage to her steering mechanisms approximately 13 miles off Peterhead. Peterhead Lifeboat was called out to rescue the crew and if possible return the yacht to harbour.

With footage taken from the Lifeboat's on-board camera, and footage from the supply vessel "Far Supporter" which aided in the rescue, Peterhead Lifeboat Press Officer David Anderson made a short film of the rescue for the station.

This video was chosen by the RNLI as the best in 2009, and won Peterhead Lifeboat Station the coveted RNLI Filmmaker of the Year award.
