Peel lifeboat called into action

Sat, 09 Oct 2010

Peel lifeboat was launched last night to rescue a yacht that had got into trouble.

The 32 ft vessel had 4 people onboard and experienced engine trouble 9 miles off the coast from Peel in winds upto 32 knots.

The Lifeboat crew were unable to land a man onboard as the conditions were so rough and had to tow it back to Peel harbour.

No injuries were reported in the incident, however one lady onboard was taken ill due to the conditions.
