Cowes Lifeboat Performs Night-Time Yacht Rescue

22nd October 2018

A yacht in danger of being driven ashore by a brisk northerly wind last night
led to Cowes RNLI lifeboat going to its aid.

The yacht, the Pequenita, with two persons aboard, was dragging its anchor in
Osborne Bay and had no engine power.

Launched at 45 minutes after midnight, the lifeboat eventually towed the yacht to
Trinity Landing. It returned to station at 1.42 am
