Lifeboat tows 40ft yacht after steering struggles


The RNLI had to come to the rescue of a 40ft yacht yesterday after its steering failed.

The St. Catherine's inshore lifeboat responded to the call around 11:15 after the yacht got into trouble north of Bouley Bay.

The yacht had dropped its anchor but due to the strong tidal currents and weather conditions, the RNLI decided to tow the yacht into Bouley Bay to allow its crew to make repairs.
