Lifeboats go to yacht's rescue

Two of the Island's volunteer lifeboat crews launched yesterday to help a yacht which had broken down off the Island's north coast.

The alarm was raised just after 6.30pm yesterday when the vessel, with two people and a dog on board, hit difficulties off the Point of Ayre.

A nearby fishing boat stood by until Ramsey lifeboat arrived - Peel lifeboat then towed the yacht to Peel.

Nobody was hurt during the incident.
