Yacht towed to safety at Ballycotton harbour

A yacht with three people on board has been towed to safety off the south-west coast after getting into difficulty earlier today (13th August 2009). Ballycotton Lifeboat and a Waterford-based Coast Guard helicopter were launched to locate and assist the vessel 12 miles off the coast. After losing all power, the 35-footyacht sought hlep and has been towed safely to Ballycotton harbour.
