Lifeboat assists troubled yacht

Mon, 08 Sep 2014

Douglas Lifeboat was launched just after 10.30pm last night to go to the aid of a yacht which was taking on water.

The boat which was travelling towards Preston had left Douglas just a few hours earlier.

The lone yachtsman was alerted to a problem by his bilge alarm and immediately turned back calling for assistance from the RNLI.

Douglas Lifeboat met the yacht and escorted the vessel safely back to Douglas Marina.
