While returning from planned exercise the ILB became aware of a yacht aground in the Anstruther harbour mouth.
The skipper of the yacht requested assistance from the ILB. The ILB turned the yacht around to allow it to power to safer waters. With the rising tide the yacht then made its own way safely into the harbour and berthed.
The ILB continued the exercise in the harbour before rehousing.
