Two people have been rescued after a yacht ran aground on the Isle of Man.

Peel's RNLI volunteer crew were called out just before 1 am on Monday 18 June - following reports of a yacht that had run aground on a beach close to Jurby.

They found a 10 metre yacht being bashed about by waves. Two people were on board.

They used a tow rope to pull the yacht clear of the surf.

Tonight’s call out demonstrates the level of commitment required by our volunteer crew to undertake the high level of training provided by the RNLI. > As a crew, we attend weekly training nights and exercise twice a month in order to ready our self for all eventualities
