The bilge keel yacht, named Amigo, with two passengers on-board was on its way towards Grimsby when it experienced mechanical difficulties and was not making any headway. The yacht then reversed its course and started to proceed towards Wells.

At 5.20pm today, the Humber coastguard requested that the Wells All-weather Lifeboat (ALB) be launched, as they were uncertain that the yacht would be able to make it safely to Wells.

The lifeboat was launched and arrived on scene at 7.25pm. It then escorted the vessel to Wells.

They arrived into Wells at about 9pm.
