The Lizard Lifeboat

Friday 18th June 2021

The Lizard Lifeboat launched on service shortly before 6pm this evening tasked to assist a 34ft yacht with 2 people on board positioned 5 miles west of Lizard Point. The yacht had reported a fouled prop and rudder rendering it powerless and unable to continue.  On scene, the Y-boat was deployed to enable lifeboat crew to get close enough cut the rudder free. Still unable to sail, a tow rope was attached. With a lifeboat crew member on board the yacht, it was towed to Newlyn Harbour. Grateful thanks to our colleagues from Penlee Lifeboat for their assistance. RNLB Rose and her crew returned to station at 10pm.
