BreakingNews.ie reports that three people were rescued by Dun Laoghaire RNLI yesterday morning (Saturday 28 July) after their yacht got into difficulty at sea.

The 47ft yacht had its sail caught on the rudder in poor weather conditions five miles offshore. The crew managed to untangle the obstruction as the lifeboat arrived to bring them to safety.
