Hope all's well too.Some youngsters wrote off a nearly new RIB (Daddy's) on the Bar at Exmouth (Still out threre!) a couple of weeks ago,although I heard all were rescued OK.

A yacht hit Plymouth break water twice on Thurday night while trying to enter the sound. It got stranded on the second grounding and the skipper jump off on to the breakwater and was rescued by the RNLI. Don't know if it's still there but the skipper must of been exhausted or drunk!

FULL DETAILS

A yachtsman has been rescued after his yacht hit the Plymouth breakwater this evening.

Brixham Coastguard received a Mayday broadcast from a yachtsman aboard a 26ft yacht, at 8:30pm. Tamar Coastguard Rescue Team were sent to the scene and the Plymouth RNLI inshore and all weather lifeboats were requested to launch. Also on scene was the MOD police launch.

Andy Huber, Watch Manager, Brixham Coastguard, says:

The sole yachtsman was sailing his boat from Dartmouth to Wales and took shelter at Plymouth due to the worsening weather conditions on scene of south westerlies force 5 – 6 gusting 7. The yacht hit the eastern end breakwater but managed to re-float itself but then hit the western end and went firmly aground. The yachtsman was then able to step off the boat onto the breakwater where he was rescued by the lifeboat crew who guided him to a safer area to embark on the lifeboat. He was then taken to Plymouth lifeboat station. The yacht is still firmly aground.
