Dannebrog needed assistance in Helsingør
After the "Dannebrog" visited Helsingør on March 3, 2017, at 4.15 p.m.problems occurred when leaving the quay again. The "Dannebrog" was pushed against to the dock by the wind and could not get away again with own power. the DSRS was therefore requested to pull away the "Dannebrog" from the dock. An hour later the lifeboat was back on its station. Danish report with photo:: http://dsrs.dk/en-kongelig-assistance
