Trio on 30ft yacht rescued

SHOREHAM lifeboatmen went to the rescue when a yacht broke down off Shoreham Harbour.

The all-weather lifeboat was launched to a report of a boat which was in trouble at 10.10am on Wednesday.

The 30ft yacht Sailorhorlic was found with three people on board, two and half miles south of Shoreham Harbour.

The yacht had an overheated engine so the Shoreham lifeboat crew set up a tow line and took it under tow into Shoreham Harbour.

The lifeboat then returned it to station.
