Baltimore RNLI provides assistance to yacht in difficulty off Baltimore Harbour
The volunteer lifeboat crew launched their inshore lifeboat shortly after 8am, following a request from the Irish Coast Guard to assist a 37 foot yacht, with three people on board, which had suffered engine failure just off Baltimore Harbour.
The inshore lifeboat towed the casualty vessel back to Baltimore Harbour and put them on a mooring off Sherkin Island.
A spokesperson for Baltimore RNLI says the skipper of the yacht did the right thing in requesting assistance as he felt winds were too light to allow him to safely access the harbour.
It's the second call out of Baltimore RNLI in less than 24 hours, they assisted a medical evacuation of Sherkin Island yesterday afternoon.
