Our Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched to assist a sailing yacht with three people onboard approximately 1 mile South of Nash Point.

The yacht had made a Pan Pan call as its sail had ripped and the crew were unable to start the engine. Our Atlantic 85 made best speed arriving on scene within 15 minutes of launching. Two of our volunteer crew were placed onboard the yacht to set up a tow. The yacht was taken under tow towards Barry. We were met by our colleagues from Barry Dock RNLI onboard their all weather lifeboat who took over the tow from us taking the yacht back to a safe haven.
