Jersey Lifeboat rescue of French yacht at Les Ecrehous

Almost afloat
taking in tow

RNLI report on the link above:

I woke up to see the lifeboats off Marmotier and a French yacht that I had guided to safety the previous day high and dry on the rocks, at first I feared the worst but a call to Jersey Radio informed me that all had been rescued and were safe and sound.

When daylight came the crew returned on the rising tide and took the vessel off.

The vessel had not moored correctly to the mooring only picking the small buoy line and not the main rope which had been tangled by a previous visitor!
