Lifeboat Called To Stricken Yacht

St. Mary’s lifeboat, RNLB The Whiteheads, under the command of Stuart Hitchens was called to a stricken French yacht yesterday.

The lifeboat was launched at 9.25am following a request for assistance from the yacht Grynde de Sel with four people on board, situated to the west of Bryher amongst the Norrard Rocks.

The boat had rope from a fisherman’s pot wrapped around her prop.

The lifeboat arrived on the scene at 10.36am and towed the yacht back to St. Mary’s harbour.
