Donaghadee Lifeboat

Stricken yacht taken under tow

A STRICKEN yacht was taken under tow by the lifeboat four miles east of the Copeland Islands. The Saxon was launched after a request from the Coastguard and the crew was quickly able to establish a tow line in calm sea conditions. The yacht and crew were taken to their home port of Carrickfergus before the lifeboat was stood down and returned to Donaghadee.
