The Lowestoft RNLI lifeboat was called to the aid of a yacht which had broken down near Kessingland.
The ‘Patsy Knight’ was called out yesterday afternoon (Sunday), at 1.30pm, to assist the yacht.
Lifeboat Coxswain John Fox said: “We were called out at 1.30pm to help a yacht which had broken down off Kessingland whilst out for a day’s sailing.
“We located the 40ft yacht called ‘Sweet Promise’ four miles south-east of Lowestoft and the two crew on board told us that they were unable to make any headway because the engines had failed.
“There was a good southerly breeze blowing as we took the vessel in tow and brought her safely back to her mooring at the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club at Lowestoft.”
