Yacht aground

A trip for breakfast soon turned into an incident when the Station Officer noticed a yacht in a slightly unusual position.

The single crewed yacht had come aground just by the Mowlem and with the conditions this isn't a usual place to land.

The National Maritime Operations Centre were informed just in case, whilst the crewman placed an anchor astern and winches himself off the beach with just enough tide left.

The vessel was monitored until safely offshore and thankfully the situation was resolved
