Falmouth All Weather Lifeboat was launched at 14:47 to assist a 7.5m Yacht with three people on board which had put out a Mayday call after it was dismasted 2 miles South West of Dodman Point. The Lifeboat arrived on scene at 15:17 and transferred two lifeboat crewmemebrs to the yacht to help clear the rigging. Once the rigging had been cut away at 15:50 the yacht was taken in tow for Fowey where it was handed over into the care of the harbourmaster launch at 18:20, the lifeboat being released to return to its station where it was berthed at 19:40.
