A lifeboat crew were called out to assist a 30ft yacht, which had got into difficulties.
The Lowestoft RNLI relief Lifeboat 'Reg' was launched just before 4.50pm today (Sunday) to aid the yacht, which had suffered engine failure not long after leaving Lowestoft.
A spokesman for Lowestoft Lifeboat said: 'Lowestoft's relief lifeboat 'Reg' was launched to assist the yacht, which had just left Lowestoft and had got into trouble about three miles south east of the port, when its engine failed.'
There were two people aboard the yacht, and one person was suffering illness as the lifeboat launched in 'choppy sea conditions,' and brought them back into Lowestoft.
