Inshore rescue

One of our correspondents reports that the crew of a yacht were rescued today by the inshore lifeboat earlier today. Our correspondent reports that apparently the boat had a damaged rudder and the rescue took place 200yards off the west pier.

Another Gurn correspondent has also now filed a reportand picture on the yacht incident:

Update 18.44: A small motor yacht moored off of Nairn was attended by both the Lifeboat and Coastguard services this afternoon. High winds have caused a choppy sea, the boat in question appears to be at anchor awaiting the next tide to come into harbour.
