Peel lifeboat Ruby Clery was launched on Friday to assist a 16-foot cruiser which had broken down five miles west of Peel with two people on board.

The Ruby and her volunteer crew launched at 9pm under the command of coxswain John Hunter.

A call was received saying a small cruiser had broken down and it was accompanied by two jet skis.

Initially one of the jet skis took the boat in tow but handed over to the Peel lifeboat which arrived back in Peel at about 10-10pm. Both persons on board were fit and well as were the two on the jet skis.
