YACHT REQUESTS ASSISTANCE APPROXIMATELY 3 MILES EAST OF THE FARNE ISLANDS
At 11:22 hrs on Tuesday 27 June 2017 U.K. Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses All Weather Lifeboat to the report of a yacht in difficulties approximatly 3 miles east of the Farne Islands.
At 11:40 hrs Seahouses ALB launched on service to the casualty vessel.
Seahouses ALB arrived on scene at 12:20 hrs and took the casualty vessel under tow.
Seahouses harbour was not accessible due to tide (low water) so the casualty vessel was towed to the shelter of the Farne Islands.
At 15:25 hrs the vessel was towed into Seahouses Harbour and safely moored.
Seahouses ALB then returned to station.
