Yacht JENNY, gave help

The lifeboat Lester was launched at approx. 00.30 to the 25ft yacht Jenny with one person on board that was reported to be aground to the east of Blakeney. The lifeboat was on scene at 01.20 and the single occupant of the yacht had been assisted ashore by the local coastguard team. The Wells lifeboat arrived at 02.30, and it was decided to wait until daylight to assess the situation. At 04.30 the yacht was sufficiently afloat for Lester to pass a line to the coastguards and the yacht was successfully towed off the beach. The tow was passed to the Wells lifeboat, and Lester returned home, arriving at about 05.30.
