A Russian sailor had to be rescued by lifeboat crews twice in the space of a week in December 2015.

Most Read

The first saw a routine training exercise turned into a real emergency after Caister lifeboat were alerted to a stricken yachtsman. Within 20 minutes two members of the lifeboat crew were on board the yacht Olivia, where they found the yachtsman had injured his right hand.

However, this was not the last that crews would hear from Olivia, as Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Lifeboat was called to Scroby Sands just six days later, when the yacht again got into difficulty and had run aground on the sandbank.

They tried to tow the yacht off, but weather conditions made it impossible, so the sailor was rescued, and the yacht abandoned and has remained ever since.
