Lifeboat rescues stranded yachts

2 visiting yachts needed to be rescued from the Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne after they were stranded by the low tide.

The harbour was blocked by the two boats which ran it to trouble because channel markers which normally guide boats in were removed for engineering works.

The boats were re-floated with the assistance of two volunteer lifeboat men, and were able to return to port with no further problems.
