Yacht “Drift Away” with engine failure
Liverpool Coastguard requested the launch of Hoylake ALB last Sunday evening to assist a 40ft yacht with engine problems. The casualty, on passage to Liverpool Marina, was struggling in the strong easterly wind. Two crew members were transferred aboard the casualty to assist with the sails and connecting the tow. Once the vessel was towed to the safety of the marina, the lifeboat returned to station.
