Yacht aground

AgroundWe saw this on the way back from Bembridge the other day.

It looks like the green yacht had gone aground, on a falling tide, and the RYA boat had stopped by to assist.

There was not much I could do in Arctic Rose, as I'd not be able to get close enough to be of any help.

From what we could see, the RYA boat pulling on the mast to reduce their draft was not working.

As things were, the tide did not have that much more to go out, and the bottom is not rocky anyway, so the vessel itself seemed to be in no real danger.
