35ft Yacht shout RNLI LittlehamptonYesterday’s shout, launch at 5:10pm to a 35ft yacht on passage from Brighton to Chichester. A headwind made for slow progress, so the crew opted to motor, but the engine wouldn’t run properly. Changed course for Littlehampton, but the full ebb and weight of rainwater meant a 5 knot current to fight in the River Arun, an impossible expectation. Blue Peter 1 launched and towed the boat in, with three people aboard plus two pussy cats. Our photo by Nicholas Leach.
