Yacht Rescued Off Eastern Isles

The damaged Comino Cat by the Old Quay this morning

The 42 ft catamaran, The Comino Cat, that was escorted back to St Mary’s by the lifeboat yesterday remains at the side of the Old Quay this morning.

The boat was holed after reportedly hitting a rock off Hanjaque at 6 knots around midday yesterday and started taking on water.

The 3 year old boat will be assessed for repair over the weekend.

One of the crew, who are based in the Plymouth area, was taken to St Mary’s hospital yesterday where she was treated for shock.

Noone sustained physical injury.
