Peel’s RNLI lifeboat all-weather lifeboat Ruby Clery was launched at 9pm last night (Tuesday) after responding to a Mayday call to help a yacht with engine problems.

‘Skua’ was on passage to Peel, around two to three miles northwest of the Manx port.

On arrival at the yacht, the engine was restarted by the owner and assistance was not needed.

Peel lifeboat and its volunteer crew accompanied the vessel safely into harbour.
