Boats towing with windy weather

A yacht and a speedboat were helped out by the Whitby lifeboat this weekend as they struggled to get back into the harbour.

On Sunday morning a four feet long vessel had broken down two miles outside the harbour and later that day the yacht, Typhoon, managed to get to the harbour wall but had engine difficulties when it tried to get in between the piers.

Both vessels were successfully towed back to safety.
