#rnli – Crosshaven RNLI lifeboat were tasked to a collision between two racing yachts, South of Roches Point competing at this afternoon's Cork Week regatta.
The initial information was that one of the yachts was taking on water.
Crosshaven lifeboat quickly launched and headed for the 32' stricken yacht. On arrival, it was clear that no crew on either boat had been injured and that the damage to one yacht, whilst extensive, was above the waterline.
