A wooden yacht with three people onboard was rescued by the RNLI off the Wexford coast yesterday evening.
A volunteer lifeboat crew from both Wexford and Rosslare RNLI stations was launched just before 7.30pm following a report that a yacht had got into difficulty off Wexford Bar.
The yacht was on passage from Scotland to the south coast of England when it got stranded on a sand bank in the mouth to Wexford Harbour.
The vessel had damaged its steering gear and it was towed to Rosslare Port.
There were no reported injuries.
