Byline: An 11m yacht was towed to safety in the early hours of Thursday morning (22 May) by RNLI Angle’s all-weather lifeboat.
Page Content: The yacht, with two adults and a dog on board, was 5
miles south of Linney Head, on the south Pembrokeshire coast, and had damage to
her sails and was unsure of her fuel levels.

The Tamar class lifeboat Mark Mason was launched at 12.23 am and was on the scene in 37
minutes. A tow was rigged and the yacht was taken to Milford Docks, arriving at
3am. 
The tow was released and the yacht, under her own power,
made her way alongside the Mackerel Stage. 
The lifeboat was released and returned to her station, where
she was rehoused at 3.23am, after 3 hours at sea.
