BBC News reports that two seasick sailors and their yacht had to be towed to safety yesterday by the Alderney lifeboat in the Channel Islands.
The 12m yacht Astazou - which was returning to mainland England from Guernsey - had reported engine problems, and its crew were unable to sail due to severe seasickness.
RNLI Alderney launched the lifeboat Roy Barker I on Thursday at 7.45pm and was alongside the yacht within the hour. Yacht and crew were then towed to Braye Harbour before midnight.
