Cruiser Rescue

Well done to Peter Thompson & Rupert Snow from the sandhopper fleet for spotting one of our cruisers in trouble drifting in very windy conditions with 5 people aboard, They swam out to seasafe 3 and effected a rescue and tow back to the mooring.

TBYC are very lucky to have such diligent and competent people who are willing to take it upon themselves to help others.

Thank you also to the RNLI who  attended and assisted with securing the vessel and bringing the crew ashore .
