After losing their rudder just outside the Cowes Harbour breakwater they had
dropped their anchor; while this prevented the yacht suffering any further mishap in
the windy conditions, the anchor proved difficult to retrieve once the lifeboat arrived
on the scene.
As a result, the anchor line had to be cut loose land attached to a marker buoy for a
later retrieval attempt.
The lifeboat then carried out an alongside tow of the yacht to East Cowes Marina.
