Called to Inchkeith Island for a Vessel Aground

The lifeboat was called to a 31 ft yacht aground on rocks to the southwest of Inchkeith island. The yacht was well aground but the crew were able to pull her clear of the rocks by towing her sideways off them.

After refloating the yacht and checking for evidence of leaks, the crew returned home while the skipper continued his journey.
