The lifeboat launched on service at 06.11 am to go to the assistance of a 25 ft yacht on passage from Roscoff to Falmouth with a position given as 22 nautical miles east of Lizard Point. The yacht’s rudder and prop were snagged on a rope. RNLB Rose arrived on scene at approximately 07.00 am. The Y boat was deployed with 2 crew members who successfully freed the rudder and prop while also recovering the rope. The lifeboat shadowed the yacht for a short time afterward to ensure all was well on board and that it was sailing freely. RNLB Rose returned to station for re-housing at 8.35 am.
