Bembridge Lifeboat had been called out to assist a yacht to the SE of the Isle of Wight, which had got fishermans ropes/lines caught in its propeller. It was agreed that Hayling Lifeboat would meet at the Chichester Bar Beacon and take over the tow.  The two lifeboats met at 00:55 and the tow was passed to the Atlantic 85 who towed the yacht into Sparkes Marina. Once the crew had been checked and found to be OK the lifeboat returned to the station so that everyone could go back to bed!
