Video: RNLI rescue after yacht's engine fails

The rescue happened after the yacht got into difficulty yesterday afternoon 

The RNLI in Larne rescued three people from a yacht in Co Antrim yesterday.

They were called on after reports a 36ft yacht was experiencing engine trouble near the entrance to Larne Lough.

The lifeboat crew established a towline before the lifeboat brought the yacht into the safety of Larne harbour. The all-weather lifeboat was met by the station’s inshore lifeboat which assisted to place the boat safely on the mooring.

Speaking following the call out, Larne RNLI Coxswain Frank Healy said: ‘All the crew training was put into action today to carry out a safe and efficient rescue.

"An excellent team effort ensured that the tow line was set up speedily and the yacht with two adults and a child onboard was safely on its mooring without delay."
