Peel RNLI recovered a yacht which got into difficulty about 16 miles off the Manx coast.
Ruby Clery had been about to open to the public for Peel RNLI flag day yesterday afternoon when crew received a call from Belfast coastguard that the yacht, Sea Time, had encountered fuel problems and was having trouble establishing its location in the misty conditions.
The yacht, which had been on its way from Ardglass to Peel, was quickly located and then towed back to Peel.
An RNLI spokesman said the one crew member was ‘none the worse for the experience’.
The lifeboat was then opened to the public for viewing.
