Lifeboat helps struggling yacht

Cromer lifeboat escorted a yacht in difficulties back to harbour this morning. The resort's temporary beach-launched lifeboat put to sea at just before 3am after a call from the Moon Stone, whose skipper and two crew were struggling with a combination of broken rigging, fatigue and failure to make progress in lumpy sea with the tide running against them.
