Humber coastguard asked for the help of the Mablethorpe RNLI and Mablethorpe Coastguard at Saltfleet Haven after a yacht ran aground on Sunday, May 18.

The haven has notorious sandbanks that catch many people out and the vessel was stuck fast.

It was agreed that Mablethorpe RNLI would return at 6pm to wait with the vessel and tow it off at high tide which was around 9.30pm.

The yacht returned to its moorings in the haven at 9.30pm.
