Lifeboat aids yacht off coast


Peel Lifeboat was called out at the weekend to help a yacht in difficulty.

On Sunday evening at around 10.35pm crews responded to reports of a 28ft yacht in trouble, unable to continue due to lack of wind and engine failure.

The vessel - found four miles of west of Peel in the Irish sea and had two sailors onboard was then towed to safety. 

The RNLI is reminding people again to make sure anyone out at sea has means of communication to call for help if needed, always wears lifejackets and check engines and fuel levels before each trip.
