Yacht stranded

The Galloway News - - School News -

Coast­guard and lifeboat teams were called out on Sun­day to help move a grounded yacht.

Two peo­ple had sailed across from Cum­bria to Dhoon Bay only for their yacht to run aground.

Al­though the pair on board man­aged to get them­selves to safety, they couldn’t move their ves­sel and the hull was dam­aged.

Kirkcud­bright Lifeboat and Coast­guard crews were called out in the af­ter­noon but were un­able to move the boat.

They re­turned late at night when the tide was higher and moved the yacht to a safe lo­ca­tion so re­pairs could be car­ried out.
