The RNLI All Weather Lifeboat was tasked to launch at just gone 22:00 making its way around to Fort Albert, where it was discovered the 35ft yacht ‘Free Spirit’ had got a line wrapped around its prop and rudder.
Attaching a tow line, the ALB towed the stricken yacht into the safety of Yarmouth Harbour in under an hour.
The 3 crew members on board Free Spirit were pleased to see the volunteer lifeboat crew and were appreciative of the assistance given.
