Pilot L242 - last known positionA pilot boat capsized in the Gulf of Finland, south of Porvoo lighthouse, on Friday 8th Dec 2017 at around 17:00.

After reports were recieved by MRC Helsinki, Finnish Border Guard boats were dispatched to the scene along with other vessels and aircraft.

Heavy swells in the area hampered rescue and after righting attempts caused the pilot boat to sink, divers entered the vessel and located the bodies of 2 crew members.

A sad incident at any time, but with christmas so close, our thoughts are with their families at this time.
