A yacht on passage from Gosport to Brighton lost engine power off Hayling and made a MAYDAY call to the Coastguard who asked us to launch to assist her. The Atlantic 85 lifeboat crew found the casualty under sail and being escorted by a fishing boat SE of the harbour entrance. The casualty dropped sail,  a tow was set up, and she was taken  into the harbour and then to Sparkes Marina and safety.
