Torbay RNLI rescue lone sailor
A lone sailor was taken off his 25ft yacht 17 miles south east of Berry Head. Sea state rough, winds force 7 from the south east. Coxswain Mark Criddle took difficult decision to leave the yacht to founder due to sea state – it wouldn’t have been possible to tow it back to Brixham, even with a drogue.
