The yacht ‘Seronissima II’, which had 3 people on board, was unsure of her position and was becalmed in thick fog 2 miles south of The Needles rocks.

With the casualty yacht having suffered catastrophic instrument failure, including the loss of GPS, Yarmouth Lifeboat was launched at around 17:30 and was quick to locate the boat.
