Ketch struggles with sails in a gusty wind.

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Friday 28 June

Launched at : 19:56

Returned at : 21:20

Weather : Fine but with a F5 gusting WNW wind

A 31ft ketch lost control of its jib sail and so anchored 600m south of the Coastguard station. The Coastguard requested that we assist and so the Atlantic 85 was launched. On reaching the vessel a crewman went on board and with the crew managed to furl the errant jib. The yacht was then escorted into the harbour and to Sparkes Marina.
