Yacht runs aground near Holy Island

Have your say

An RNLI lifeboat was launched to help refloat a yacht which had run aground near Holy Island yesterday.

The 19ft boat had been travelling from Amble to Berwick, when the skipper attempted to pass the island on the mainland side, where the channel is too shallow for vessels to pass.

Shore-based Coastguards from the Island reported the yacht was well aground and listing at neighbouring St Cuthbert’s Island and called for assistance from Seahouses Lifeboat Station at 11.40am.
