Yacht stuck in shallows at Chichester harbour

Have your say

A LIFEBOAT was launched to secure a yacht which was in shallow water.

The RNLI crew from the Hayling Island station responded to the call on Saturday night in Chichester Harbour after the skipper had concerns over the angle his vessel was listing.

They reassured the skipper and used an anchor to hold the yacht in place until the tide went back in. They returned at 8.20pm.
