Peel lifeboat went to the assistance of a local yacht that ran aground at the entrance to the town’s harbour.

The lifeboat crew was on exercise Sunday morning when it was diverted to help.

Under the command of coxswain John Hunter two of the volunteer crew ran a line over to the stricken yacht on an inflatable dinghy and shortly after the yacht was pulled free without damage or injury.
