12m yacht rescued by Eastbourne RNLI after engine failure

A 12 METER yacht had to be salvaged by the RNLI after an engine failure.

Eastbourne’s all-weather lifeboat was tasked with locating and assisting the yacht and the two people on board.

The ship suffered an engine failure en route from Boulogne in France to Eastbourne.

“Due to increasing winds and tide conditions, the decision was made to tow the ship to the safety of Sovereign Harbor by lifeboat,” said an RNLI spokesman.

The rescue took place on Thursday, July 28 at 5:40 p.m.

Earlier this week, a dog had to be rescued by the Eastbourne RNLI and Coastguard after falling almost 400ft off a cliff.

A lifeboat assisted in the search and rescue of the dog and its owner who were trapped on the cliff

“This was a very unfortunate accident and we would urge people to be aware of the dangers of walking dogs along the coast.

“Always dial 999 in situations like this and ask for the Coast Guard.”
