1.88 hours at sea


A pilot vessel noticed a yacht near the main shipping channel when heading out to board a ship. On their return the boat was in a similar location so they checked it out and found no lights or signs of life aboard.

The lifeboat was tasked to locate the yacht and on arrival established that it had broken its mooring, and no one had been onboard. The yacht was towed in Burntisland harbour and secured.

The lifeboat then returned to station.
