Ballycotton RNLI lifeboat assists 31 ft. yacht
Ballycotton lifeboat station received a request for assistance to a 31 ft. yacht with a fouled propeller 4 miles east of Ballycotton. The yacht, with two persons aboard, had left Crosshaven earlier when a rope wrapped around its propeller south of Knockadoon, East Cork.  On arrival at the casualty a lifeboat crewmember was placed on board and attempts were made to free the rope. With the successful completion of this exercise the yacht continued it journey and Ballycotton RNLI lifeboat returned to station.
