'Missing' yacht found moored in Poole Harbour after search

First published in News by

A 36ft sailing yacht which apparently vanished without trace has been found moored in Poole Harbour.

Poole’s RNLI team was called to assist coastguard rescue teams in the hunt for the vessel and its crew of five, which was last seen off Swanage around 5.15pm yesterday having departed Weymouth on Saturday. No further contact had been made.

The search was stood down shortly before noon today after Poole inshore lifeboat located the yacht in Poole Harbour off Brownsea Island, secured to a mooring nr Northhaven Yacht Club.

Enquiries made by coastguard officers and the lifeboat crew have revealed that the occupants of the yacht are safe and ashore. Suitable advice is being passed to the skipper.

I thought I'd had a tomato stolen from my shared fridge. I was furious, until I discovered it had rolled behind my block of red leicester cheese and was thus, hidden from view.
It's easy to make a mistake.

But then that does not involve all the rescue services being brought into action, while you got some 'tit' sipping Pims at the yacht club, unawares the waste of money they have caused.......utter **** !

There IS a system which the owner could have installed - It is called AIS but it is not mandatory on small private vessels.
It also costs money, which would reduce the gin fund.
