Red Bay All Weather and Inshore lifeboats launched on service this morning at 08.45 to go to the aid of a sinking yacht near Cushendall.
Both lifeboats were quickly alongside the 40ft vessel. Salvage pumps from both lifeboats were transferred to the yacht along with 4 lifeboat crew members who were able to save the vessel from sinking. The Lifeboats then towed the yacht to Red Bay where it was safely brought ashore.
No one was injured in the 3 hour operation.
