Berwick RNLI called to rescue stricken yachts man north of Holy Island 
 
Berwick RNLI called to rescue stricken yachts man north of Holy Island, on Friday October 12th, after receiving a call from HM Coastguard. 
 
The all-weather lifeboat was launched at 12.09pm, where crew came up on a 27 feet long yacht which had lost its anchor and was suffering engine failure.  
 
The lone sailing 24 year old male, had sailed from Hartlepool and was heading up around Scotland and making his way to Porthmadog in Wales, when he got into engine trouble. 
 
He had tried to re-anchor due to the swell of the tide to stabilise the vessel, when his anchor had snapped, it was then because he was drifting and getting too close to rocks around the area that he decided he needed the help of the RNLI.
 
After the crew had towed the yacht safely into the Berwick Dock, they brought the very cold and wet sailor at 4pm into Berwick lifeboat station, where he was given dry clothes and a warm drink.  Once warmed up the crew then directed him to where he could get parts for to do repairs to his yacht. He said, ‘I can’t thank you all enough for what you have done’.
