Pete Doherty sinks boat into Loch Lomond – Tabloid Hell

Babyshambles man rescued after 'Navyshambles' mishap

Pete Doherty had to be rescued from a sinking rowing boat at Loch Lomond Festival on Saturday (August 2).

The Babyshambles man and five mates set sail for the VIP area after the band’s set, hiring a boat from a local “Para Handy-like figure” on the Loch, according to the Daily Record.

However, the boat capsized 30 yards from the shore, leaving the “shivering” singer to sing sea shanties to his pals as they awaited rescue.

“It was freezing and we had a laugh, but it wouldn’t be funny if someone had died,” Babyshambles manager Adrian Hunter told the newspaper.

“Halfway to the shore we lost an oar so the boat was drifting, but we didn’t really mind. Then we realised it had sprung a leak and water was coming in fast. It sank about three quarters of the way over and we all ended up in the water,” he added.

Pete and his crew were eventually rescued one-by-one by Adrian‘s brother Kevin.

“He swam like Tarzan and saved us all,” he said.
