Both of Penarth’s lifeboats were called out this afternoon to deal with sailing yachts in distress.
The first call was to the aid of a yacht with engine problems off Lavernock. The problems were eventually resolved by the yacht’s crew and the 36 foot long vessel was able to reach port.
Shortly afterwards a second yacht was discovered aground on the Cefn Y Wrach mudbank off Penarth. Two lifeboat crew members went aboard the vessel . She was refloated later and docked safely .
