Wexford and Rosslare Harbour RNLI bring yacht to safety
A 39ft wooden yacht with three people onboard was brought to safety by Wexford and Rosslare Harbour RNLI in County Wexford yesterday evening (Sunday 23 April).

Volunteer lifeboat crew from both stations were requested to launch just before 7.30pm following a report that a yacht had got into difficulty off Wexford Bar.

The 1925 ketch with three onboard 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.
