Peel lifeboat launched to assist yacht

Tue, 14 May 2019

Peel lifeboat were launched on Saturday night to assist a 13.5 metre yacht in Peel bay.

The yacht which had been on the bay mooring throughout the day in fresh seas was in danger of parting its mooring rope and drifting onto Peel foreshore. The alarm was raised by a fellow sailor on Peel breakwater through Belfast coastguard who in turn called out the lifeboat.

The lifeboat under the command of coxswain Frankie Horne put crewmen Jonathon Corlett and Mike Faragher on board the yacht and they managed to raise the crew and assisted in successfully bringing the yacht alongside Peel breakwater under its own power accompanied by the lifeboat.
