Hastings ILB was requested to launch at 14:35 today after Solent CG received reports of a yacht possibly in difficulty off of Fairlight!

The ILB and her volunteer crew quickly located the vessel and although was making good way under sail the skipper stated he was experiencing engine problems!
The ILB continued to escort the yacht towards Sovereign Harbour then passed the escort to RNLI Eastbourne off of #Bexhill who ensured the yacht entered the harbour safely
