Yacht is escorted home after fouled prop

RNLI volunteers aboard Donaghadee’s All-Weather Lifeboat, Saxon, stood by to assist after a call for help from the crew of a yacht this afternoon. (June 17) The 10-metre craft, with a crew of two, reported that it had a fouled propeller and was adrift off the rocks near Portavogie. The Saxon launched at the request of the Coastguard. The yacht’s crew managed to free the propeller without assistance but were escorted into harbour as a precaution.
