The 19 meter long, 62 gt fishing vessel Stiene Bruhns became disabled off Sylt Island, Germany. The trawler alerted the Sylt DGzRS station that the vessel had its propeller fouled by a rope and drifting towards shore. The DGzRS lifeboat was dispatched and reached the Stiene Bruhns an hour later. Due to the strong winds in the area, the lifeboat had some difficulty getting a towline connected to the Stiene Bruhns. The towline was attached and the lifeboat towed the trawler back to port of Havneby. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
