The all weather lifeboat was launched to assist the inshore lifeboat with a 21ft yacht drifting towards the harbour arm at Shoreham.

The inshore lifeboat crew had taken the distressed man on board off the boat and back to the lifeboat station. A crew member from the all weather lifeboat got aboard the vessel and a tow line was set up. The lifeboat towed the yacht to Brighton Marina and she was put on a visitor’s pontoon.

The lifeboat returned to station.
